The photos show 7 WYATT performing five plays, each one about a different Hindu god, and each one with a symbolic message. Niki Farakish of 7 Wyatt writes: 'Our summer RE Assessment was to script and perform (in costume and with props) a play based on a story about a Hindu god. In this Assessment half the mark went to the script, the other half to the performance. We have been studying the beliefs and practices of Hinduism this year. We worked in groups of six, first reading and interpreting the story and then planning a play in an appropriate style, be it comedy or romance. First we all had to discuss the story and agree on the message we were trying to get across. We then had to draw up a list of characters (e.g. demons, villagers, monkeys, cows as well as the leading characters- for example gods such as Parvati. Shiva, Kali and Hanuman. Once we had agreed the scenes we planned the dialogue and action. When we began to rehearse changes were made as we found out what worked and what didn't. On the day of the performances everyone was excited and nervous. SH1 became a make up studio over lunch time. Some people went to registration and first lesson looking unrecognisable. We assessed one another's performances and improvised when anything went wrong. We went out there and gave it our all! It was hugely entertaining, enjoyable as well as educational!' Thanks to Miss Godfrey for taking the photos and to Ms Garrett.'
