Shakespeare at Spring Brook!
Two classrooms, both alike in their hatred of Shakespeare,
From ancient grudge break new mutiny…
… and what a mutiny it was!
Massive well-done to SBU3 and SBU4 who participated in a ‘War of Words’ Shakespeare-style!
SBU3 represented the house of Montague.
SBU4 represented the house of Capulet.
Both classes have been developing their knowledge of the plot of Romeo and Juliet and its modern-day, gnome-filled reproduction: Gnomeo and Juliet!
The classes have worked to develop their character knowledge before taking on the role of a character within their class family.
In true feuding family style, each pupil created a ream of Shakespearean insults to taunt each other with! They researched the modern-day meanings of these insults before performing in a battle of words, biting their thumbs at the opposing family!
Pupils’ engagement in the Speaking and Listening activity and their prior knowledge of the adjective-noun pairings needed for an effective insult were outstanding!
Fantastic job SBU3 and SBU4!!
p.s. Mr Stewart is a green-eyed, lily-livered knave!
…the mutiny lives on!
