What must life have been like for a Roman Legionary serving in the cold North of England?
It's certainly not made any better by having to venture beyond the protection of the wall.
Join Gaius as he arrives for his new posting at Hadrian's Wall.
"Wow - a feast for our eyes, ears and brains. Great idea to have the interim discussions to re-focus learning for everyone.
Please come back again and again and again."
Louisa Brown, Knightlow Primary School
"The quality of Hobgoblin productions is always extremely high and we were not disappointed with 'The Wall'!
It is very impressive how the team manages to convey so much information in such a humorous and engaging way. The format of the performance, interactions and workshops works very well as it helps to consolidate learning and extends the children's practice in drama.
The team are 100% reliable, punctual and professional and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to another school."
Vanessa Slade, St Anthony's RC PrimarySchool
"A fantastic play loved by both children and staff.
Very informative and enjoyable.
The workshops were a great way to elicit childrens understanding, a great way of informing teachers of the childrens understanding so far!
Miss Trinion, Bradley Primary School
"Thank you for a fantastic morning! The children absolutely loved it and the performance supplemented their prior knowledge really well.
I'll definitely share this with other teachers and schools in the area. Thanks."
St Andrew's Primary School
"Excellent production - very informative and entertaining for the children and also managed to be enjoyable for the adults.
Managed to cover a lot of ground in a short time. One of the best we have had."
Carole Winter, Loxwood Primary School
"Another inspirational performance! The boys thoroughly enjoyed the play (as did the teachers) and learned much from the experience.
The drama workshop brought out the creative side of the pupils. They loved it. Thank you again."
Louise McGrath, Donhead PreparatorySchool
"Entertaining and educational for the kids.
Professional staff who were excellent actors and were brilliant with the students."
Ray Gabbard, Cumnor House School
An interactive theatre in education piece that will involve the children in discussion with the actors to further their understanding and enjoyment of their Roman study.
Where is Hadrian's Wall...?
At the end of Hadrian's garden!
If you have never experienced theatre in education before (and, more specifically, Hobgoblin Theatre Company) then you will have no idea of the dramatic impact that the experience can have on childrens' understanding of, and passion for, a particular topic.
Hopefully these comments that other teachers have made will prompt you to give us a call!
