The Canterbury Tales
On the 15th May, pupils from Year 5 at the Prep spent an afternoon at the Upper to watch a specially-staged preview of the annual Lower School Drama production. The Canterbury Tales is a lively re-telling of a selection of stories from Chaucer's original work in a version by Martin Riley. The script is also a set text in the Scheme of Learning for the Year 7 English curriculum at The Perse. The Year 5 pupils enjoyed the enthusiastic performance by members of the Lower School. Their introduction to life at the Upper also included a taste of Upper school lunches ('really delicious' and 'tasty' were some of the comments received!).
