This week in the library we have been celebrating Shakespeare Week.

During the week, students enjoyed playing a board game based on Shakespeare’s life, winding their way through plague, marriage, and rebellion as they learnt all about the famous bard.

We started to read A Midsummer Night’s Dream before our eager poets-in-the-making created their own Haikus based on the mystical events in Athens and the many lovestruck characters.

Our Kahoot quiz included all year groups who impressed us with their Shakespeare knowledge – do you remember who spoke the famous line “Once more unto the breach, dear friends”? I’ll give you a clue: it was one of the Henrys!

To end the week, the library held a Scavenger Hunt during lunchtime. Students searched high and low for facts about Shakespeare and his work, and some felt quite betrayed by the particularly sneaky hiding spots! It was a wonderful end to an incredibly jam-packed week, celebrating such an important part of our literature and our culture.
