As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and the closure of UK schools, many young people will be working from home for the first time. But this doesn’t mean learning, or creativity, need to stop.
Whether you're a parent looking for inspiration or a student wanting to get creative, we've got lots of resources and ideas you can use.
Shakespeare’s play King Lear was first performed in 1606, shortly after a major outbreak of plague had shut down much of London, so it’s possible he wrote the play during that time. But if you’re not feeling inspired to write your own play just yet, below is a list of the content we already have that will help you to keep learning about his.
We are currently working on a number of new resources that you will be able to use shortly, including:
- An activity toolkit for Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth, with a series of flexible 15 minute activities that can be completed at home or at school
- Weekly homework help sessions with actors and artists
- Student activity packs to accompany online versions of Shakespeare’s most studied plays
These will be available here shortly, so please do keep checking back.
