Niall Whitehead from Helenswood Academy has previously run the first of two workshops designed to help teachers take Shakespeare into the classroom, both at primary and secondary level. The first workshop was a great success working with teachers from 16 schools across the district.
The second workshop will be on 12th November and to book a place please email Niall at firstname.lastname@example.org. More details to follow.
Following the workshops and the development of Shakespeare in our schools we would like to see schools come forward to work with us on a Shakespeare festival to mark the anniversary of the bards death 400 years ago.
Also worth mentioning is the free live streaming offered to school by the RSC, this is from their website:
EducationNot every school can make the journey down to Shakespeare's home town of Stratford-upon-Avon and see his plays performed at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, so if you can't come to us, we can come to you!
Registration is now open for Henry V on 19 November 2015, Othello on 17 March 2016 and The Merchant of Venice on 21 April 2016 - register now
The new curriculum for KS3 means that students are required to study two Shakespeare plays; we know that one of the best ways to experience Shakespeare is to see it live. Watch our trailer to see how our Schools' Broadcasts are transforming young people's attitudes towards Shakespeare
Over 60,000 students have joined us over our previous five broadcasts.
The Schools' Broadcasts are available free to all UK schools and are supported by downloadable resources tailored for both a primary and secondary audience, including interactive whiteboard resources, downloadable packs and activities, rehearsal clips, interviews and images.
We also have a BSL interpreted version of the broadcasts to make sure they are accessible to D/deaf, deafened and hard of hearing students.
