Norwich Road Academy Celebrate Shakespeare Week!

Norwich Road Academy have spent the week learning about Shakespeare and celebrating his work.

Mrs Hunt, a year 4 teacher explained “I loved teaching during Shakespeare week, it really enriched our curriculum and taught our pupils about an important part of their history.”

Over the week pupils watched adaptations of famous plays, acted out scenes from plays, learned about the Globe theatre and Shakespeare’s life. Pupils’ cooked Tudor food, listened to Tudor music drew and painted!

All this hard work culminated in pupils dressing up as a Shakespearean character or Tudor person. Louis in year 4 said “I loved dressing up as it made me feel like I was really in the Tudor times, I thought the Shakespearean insults were really funny!” Katie added “I liked learning the Anthony and Cleopatra play as it linked with our topic work on Romans”

Great fun was had by all!
