‘All the World’s a Stage’ – William Shakespeare

In Year 5 we’re starting to learn about William Shakespeare in our History lessons. Next week we will be performing some Shakespeare in class. Hastoe have been the most knowledgeable class so far and can name 14 of his plays.

Just look at some of the famous phrases and sayings that he created in his writing career:

 

Some people think Shakespeare is difficult, boring or not relevant to us after 400 years. Do you know anyone who comes with their

“satchel
and shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwilling to school”?
 

Do leave a comment on the blog about what you think.

End of term

So, first term down. Merry Christmas to all our readers.

What did you all make of your first term at Bridgewater? Did anything surprise you this term? What are you most looking forward to in the Spring term?

Do keep an eye open for little prize competition questions over the holiday. If anyone wants to send in some poetry or creative writing, please feel free and it may well be displayed on this site. If I find any good activities, I’ll post up some links.  You don’t have to be in Mounts to contribute as some of Marlin and Moneybury already know.

For those of you who don’t already know it, here’s a link to the Official NORAD Santa tracker site to help you get even more in the mood for Christmas: http://www.noradsanta.org/en/
