Love in the woods, magic and mischief with A Midsummer Night's Dream in Reception Class this week! In Reception, we have listened to a reading of parts of the play and watched the Cbeebies play acted out. Reception loved the silliness in the play, and made puppets and retold the story in their own words.
Year 1 spent the week looking at one of Shakespeare’s last plays, The Tempest. They performed the first scene from this famous play. They had actors, dancers, musicians and artists all contributing to creating the famous storm scene.
Our Year 2 children wrote a mini fact file on the famous poet/playwright and then, the children learnt about and wrote out one of Shakespeare’s popular plays: Romeo and Juliet. In assembly, some of the children even got the opportunity to perform a rap song about Shakespeare – a great end to the week for such a distinguished writer!
A huge thank you to all staff members for the time and effort you put into planning your Shakespeare week!
