Midsummer Night's Dream Week
In July 2022, we celebrated the Summer season by looking at the world of William Shakespeare, and in particular the play: A Midsummer Night's Dream.
The whole school listened to and watched the story, and then created a variety of different responses in English to the text. We also created art and other cross-curricular pieces of work linked to the play, Shakespeare and the Tudor age.
Have a look at some of our work below:
During the week Reception created labelled maps of the fairy kingdom as well as paintings of themselves as a magical animal (just like Bottom!) and fairy puppets.
Year One wrote some beautiful love poetry about people and things they care about, as well as creating some fabulous lollypop fairies!
