Brushing Up on Our Shakespeare!

User Rating:  / 0


This week, we have been celebrating the famous English writer and poet William Shakespeare. In Literacy, we have taken the opportunity to find out more about him and his life and have created fact files to share key facts and develop out non-fiction writing skills. We have also enjoyed using role play to explore one of his plays, Romeo and Juliet, and to try and better understand the language of the time.

We have linked the theme to our reading throughout the week too and have used our key reading skills of inference and deduction to draw images of famous Shakespeare characters from their descriptions.

Following the success of The Big Hoot last year, we are taking part in this year's Big Read and therefore another of our activities this week was to design a Shakespeare themed bench in honour of The Bard! We enjoyed using our drawing and design skills to come up with creative and innovative designs!

Big Read

In each of the Year 3 classes, we have now nominated our talent show acts in preparation for next week's Talent Show and are looking forward to making posters to promote them and cheering them on as we watch all the acts and see just how much incredible talent our school has to offer.

Best of luck to The Magic Masters, Thea and Jaya and The Uptown Funky Kids!
