Developed by one of the world's leading theatre companies, this fantastic resource has been specially adapted to offer primary teachers a practical, drama-based approach to teaching and appreciating three of Shakespeare's most popular plays: Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
All of the work is suitable for students at KS2.
The toolkit brings the plays alive as performance pieces, with pupils undertaking drama-based explorations of the text that take them through much of the play.
Teachers' notes and accompanying photocopiable worksheets offer a lesson-by-lesson teaching route through each of the three plays in turn. The schemes of work offer teachers a route through each play that has been designed to be flexible and to bolt on to what they already teach.
The schemes comprise a series of lessons that can either be followed in their entirety as a stand-alone scheme of work or which can be dipped into by teachers wanting to augment their existing schemes of work.
