Year 9 students were treated to a performance of Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ from the Tiny Giants Theatre group. Pupils were amazed by the groups ability to play so many different roles and capture the story of Scrooge with a cast of only three actors. This was a great opportunity to start thinking about one of the novels that is on the new GCSE syllabus. All year 9 pupils will need to study a pre-twentieth century novel, like ‘A Christmas Carol’ for the GCSE examination in 2017.
