Day 2 of our 3-day Shakespeare Festival and it really came alive today with a fantastic array of costumes and dressing up for our Shakespeare themed World Book Day! From Juliet to Richard III, Cleopatra to Puck, Titania to Shakespeare himself, there was an amazing collection of characters. Thank you to everyone for making such a brilliant effort.
The children have been exploring all things Shakespeare; finding out about his life, his writing and the history of The Globe theatre. They have performed lines from his plays and explored A Midsummer Night's Dream in detail, in preparation for performances in the forest. They have insulted each other in Shakespearian language - they possible enjoyed that most of all - and explored some of Shakespeare's forgotten words. There have been sessions in Pre-Prep on Will's Wellbeing and and even Fantasy Football for Prep pupils.
Day 3 involves workshops, a Midsummer Night’s Dream Forest School and a Shakespeare assembly from Year 4. What a fantastic festival!
