Shakespeare on my Doorstep Programme

Shakespeare on my Doorstep Programme

This week, our Year 9 students had the opportunity to visit Shakespeare's Globe for a 90-minute workshop and tour.  The pupils got to learn about when the Globe theatre was built, what materials it was made out of and all about the different areas of the theatre and how the seating represented social status in the Elizabethan period.

After that, we were taken around to Bear Gardens to do a 60-minute workshop on 'Romeo and Juliet'. In this, the pupils explored character relationships and how to analyse Shakespearean language. Overall, a successful and enjoyable trip to start off the Shakespeare on my Doorstep project.
