Today our entire day was dedicated to the life and works of William Shakespeare, which will be our new topic for this half term.
First of all we learnt all about the key events that happened during his life and we plotted them onto a timeline to show them in chronological order. Next we had a chance to learn some of the vocabulary that Shakespeare used by experimenting with Shakespearean insults. The children really enjoyed it when we took advantage of the sunshine to go out onto the playground so that we
could perform our insults dramatically. Finally we took a virtual tour of the Globe Theatre and learnt a lot about this incredible venue and the plays that took place there.
