Centre for Literacy in Primary Education
This series of three imaginative days led by Shakespeare Schools Festival which will provide Key Stage Two and Three teachers with practical ideas and approaches to unlocking children’s creativity and raising achievement using Shakespeare’s plays.
Day One: Practical approaches to working with Shakespeare in the classroom
A toolkit of accessible approaches that will challenge, support and inspire your students
The best way to approach Shakespeare is through a practical exploration of the text. Progression in improvisation and work in role involves children becoming increasingly aware of a range of ways of acting out in order to create, explore and communicate ideas about situations, characters, ideas and emotions. This workshop will empower you to work with your pupils actively. It is a fantastic introduction to practical approaches that will unlock your students’ creativity and give them a deeper connection to story and language.
