Visual explanations make Shakespeare so accessible to everybody. This is a great way to introduce Shakespeare to students.
The English Department organised a Shakespeare Day for all Secondary Students yesterday. Every High School English class studied a work of Shakespeare last term.
Students and all the teachers took part in activities set up for each year group in different areas of the school. Within each group, performances of the play they had studied took place followed by rotating activities based on the play for that group.
Of course the final activity was a feast of gigantic proportions! Most students and teachers ‘dressed up’ for the occasion and here are two of our PDHPE staff dressed as Romeo and Juliet!
