Year 9 English Excursion : A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Students in Year 9 will be viewing A Midsummer Night’s Dream to enhance their contextual understanding of the works of William Shakespeare as they study The Merchant of Venice in Term 3. The viewing of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will enhance their understanding of the structure of a play, how plays are interpreted and stage from script to stage and highlight how moments of comedy and drama are used to create light and shade within a play. These are critical elements in approaching and decoding the works of Shakespeare.

Students will also be completing a visual essay task within the city to apply their knowledge of First Nation poetry and issues. Students will be travelling the city in groups with staff stationed throughout as check-in points.

Students should bring lunch with them as there maybe limited opportunity to purchase food. Students should also bring a water bottle.

Students will be dismissed from the city at 2:30 PM and will be required to find their own way home.
