Dear Parent / Guardian,



Shakespeare Week


From Monday 9th March until Friday 13th March we will be celebrating Shakespeare week. Children will be studying Shakespeare and there will be lots of activities.

Activities will include:

  • Children studying Shakespeare’s plays
  • Drama workshop
  • A whole school performance with Mrs Lucas
  • University Challenge type quiz


As part of the celebrations, on Thursday 12th March we would like the children to dress up as a Shakespeare character or in a Tudor costume.  We would like to offer the following suggestions, that will be inexpensive so that all our children can be involved:
