Oscar Romero

On Friday Year 5 enjoyed a fantastic workshop hosted by  Rise Theatre, all about Oscar Romero. We found out a  lot  about where Oscar Romero came from and what it would have been like to live there. We first located El Salvador on the map and then Kate and John told us all about the people from El Salvador. We found out that 90%of the people were farmers and would spend 12 hours a day in the scorching sun picking things like coffee,cotton and fruits. We then heard about how cruel the landowners were, they were very rich, yet did not help the farmers. In the afternoon we all enjoyed a play about the life of Oscar Romero.
