We have been learning about William Shakespeare.

As a class, we learned about his life, before reading some of his plays (the shortened versions!). We then retold some of the plays by writing and composing our own Shakespeare raps:


Henry V


Midsummer Night's Dream

Richard III

Romeo & Juliet

The Tempest

Twelfth Night.mp3




The children have created their own web-pages.
