Buckle up, sunglasses on. We’re going on a road trip across the good old US of A. Flying from London Gatwick, and landing at JFK airport New York, it’s time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. Use your map skills to navigate your way around some of its most famous landmarks and send a postcard home to ask the question ‘Do you wish you were here?’ Learn how to send an email to book a day trip or reserve a room. Make sure you ask the important questions ‘Does your hotel have a pool? Is there 24-hour room service?’ Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions. Then plan a bespoke road trip for Mr Smith and his family of four. They want to spend three weeks in the sunshine. It’s going to be a long ride. Put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair. We’re off.

Novel Study - A Mid Summer Nights Dream

When the path of true love runs smoothly, the world seems a wonderful place - all bright skies and smiling faces.  Unfortunately, true love has a habit of wandering off the path and getting lost, and when that happens people's lives get lost too, in a tangle of misery.
 
Love and Magic in 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.  Shakespeare brings together two worlds: the human world of Athens, and the fairy world of the woods outside the city.  One world is ruled by law, the other by magic, in both worlds trouble is brewing.
 
In the woods outside Athens, Oberon and Titania are busy arguing over a page boy.  Meanwhile Demetrius, who is as stubborn as Oberon, is insisting on marrying Hermia, even though she loves someone else.  Add a group of bickering actors and Puck, a mischievous sprite, and madness follows.
 
The humans are made to love the wrong partners and Titania falls in love with one of the actors, who has the head of a donkey!
 
When the human lovers begin to fight one another, the play comes close to tragedy, but magic sets things right.  The humans find their true loves and Oberon realises that his love for Titania is stronger than his pride.
 
The Elizabethans believed in a 'midsummer madness' that was caused by the heat of the summer sun and many of the characters in A Midsummer Night's Dream believe as if they have been touched by this madness.
