A World of Words : Shakespeare and Your Imagination with Anna Kamaralli
Years 5 and 6: Language and Literature
Shakespeare’s plays include shipwrecks, magical islands, and lands ruled by ancient kings and queens presiding over courts decorated with riches or conjured up by fairies. We will use his language, from plays like A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Tempest, Twelfth Night and more, to build some of these worlds and then visit them ourselves. What places can you create using the power of words, and what people will you find there? Join us on a journey where we make the destinations and you become a shipwrecked traveller, the Duke of Illyria, the Queen of Egypt, or someone you make up yourself in a land you just invented. Discover a kingdom, find a treasure – or get eaten by a bear!
