Shakespeare is undoubtedly the most prolific playwright in history, using a range of literary language to create vivid storytelling. What better reason to take our Year 3 and 4 students to the local library to take part in a Shakespeare workshop!
The workshop was led by the very talented, Timothy Weston, who is a fantastic thespian actor, highly experienced and enthusiastic. His techniques and leadership really helped our children gain an understanding of communicating confidently, whilst learning about Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. This linked really nicely to our project - Natural Disasters - as we have looked at the eruption of Vesuvius in our drama lessons and in English in Year 3.
The children were so engaged, putting their acting skills to the test. We saw betrayal, deceit, revenge and death all crammed into the hour session! The children even had a chance to dress up.
Thank you to Mr Seb, Miss Anna and Miss Sanchez for taking the children and to the Wandsworth Library team for hosting us.
