Current topic:

Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet'

"Are you ready to meet the Bard himself, to explore one of our country’s – and the world’s – greatest ever playwrights? We will immerse ourselves in the world of Shakespeare, undergoing detailed research to find out what it was like to visit the theatre in 14th Century England. We will write diary entries and compare this to theatres in modern times. Then, in preparation for our Shakespeare Schools Festival performance after half-term, we will bury ourselves in the play itself, learning about all the weird and wonderful characters that will bring our play to life! We will write social media posts from the 14th Century to get inside the characters’ minds, whilst all the time exploring the rich, and very different, language that Shakespeare can delight us with. We will finish the topic by wowing the 400+ crowd as we present an abridged version of a Shakespeare classic."
