Team CW enjoyed learning about Shakespeare this week in Drama. First they had a history lesson and learnt how times were different over 400 years ago when Shakespeare was alive.
They began by looking at how clothes and houses were different to what we see today. After looking at sources they could say that men sometimes wore short trousers, wore a cape over one shoulder and had different hairstyles. When learning about other aspects of society they were surprised that beds sometimes had curtains around to help keep people warm and that there was no electricity, just candles!
They learnt that Shakespeare had 9 brothers and sisters and lived on a farm. His dad made gloves and sold them from his house. They were also surprised that in the past it was common for Falcons to be kept as pets! They know that Shakespeare was a writer and wrote stories and plays. He is a very important person and is known throughout the World!
Team CW then watched a summary of one of his famous plays; A Midsummer Nights Dream and completed a Drama activity showing Freeze Frames of different characters and emotions.
