“We are planning to celebrate the life and works of William Shakespeare on Monday 23rd April, his birth and death day!
There will be a number of activities taking place during the day and within many lessons. In order to make the day memorable pupils are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite Shakespearean character. We are hoping to see witches, fairies, roman soldiers, wicked queens, donkeys, Scottish warriors, star cross’d lovers, Egyptian queens and other wonderful characters all ready to learn about the bard!
The following websites have many Shakespearean facts, activities and ideas about life in Elizabethan England. Hopefully they may provide some inspiration when deciding on who you may be and could be a fun task to share with your friends and family over the Easter break.
If you have any ideas, or would like to volunteer to help with the preparations, please contact Ms O’Neill-Walton in English room 8.
(Please note that uniform must be worn by any students not wishing to dress as a Shakespearean character.)”
