Years 7 and 9 students were treated to performances of ‘The Reduced Jewish History Project’ this week, an original concept devised by Mr Rinkoff, Head of faculty for Jewish Education.
This is a cross-curricular event between the Jewish Education and Drama departments featuring the Year 10 Drama students ably lead and directed by Mrs Sloane, Head of Drama together with drama teacher Ms Whitfield.
The Drama students performed a hilarious, high energy comedy penned by the talented writer Keren Keet. The scriptwriter worked in conjunction with both departments to bring to life the Jewish History curriculum studied in Key Stage 3. 2,000 years of Jewish History were condensed into a fast moving and colourful hour covering pertinent events in Judaism’s varied and rich past, from a completely fresh and innovative new angle.
The audience of students were given the opportunity to take part in an ambitious educational experience and were encouraged to jot down the key Historical facts in their bespoke programme created by the Year 10 students.
