Longden C of E Primary School - 'A Dream in the Wood' video
Year 6 students from Longden C of E Primary School started with a classroom discussion in their literacy hour about Titian's 'Bacchus and Ariadne'.
The students began to consider the story represented in the painting. This led to a discussion of magical and mythological creatures as well as the mysterious woodland shown in the painting. Comparisons were made with the characters and woodland in Shakespeare's play 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.
Starting with these ideas, a video was produced in which students from the school encounter mystery and magic in the wood surrounding their school.
