A fantastic new English session for Key Stage 2 pupils focusing on developing spoken language and written composition skills.

In Shakespeare’s Shoes is a fantastic new 90 minute English session for Key Stage 2 pupils focusing on developing spoken language and written composition skills. Focusing on Sonnet 18 as stimulus, pupils are encouraged to understand how Shakespeare ‘innovated’ his work to create the masterpiece we know today and to use this as a basis for developing their own sonnet. The climax of the session is a performance of the children’s work in the Tudor Great Hall where Shakespeare’s players once performed to James I.
