This year we have continued to work with Mrs Gentles who, despite retiring, has taught Shakespeare across the school. Mr Askew’s class were fortunate to prepare for the festival held at King James in March and took part in a wonderful performance in Romeo and Juliet.

In 2019-20 we look forward to continuing working with our cluster and the RSC. Mrs Ferguson and Miss Macieira will be sharing their Shakespeare knowledge that they have gained from the RSC training and also from Mrs Gentles in Golden time each week where they will work with classes over the year We are not sure yet which class will be chosen to work on our annual festival. We will also use our Shakespeare techniques  in other lessons to help introduce children to new and different vocabulary to close the vocabulary gap that some children have.
