Shakespeare in the Primary Classroom

CPD for teachers of Shakespeare in the Primary Classroom

Are you a teacher wondering how to give your school children a great first encounter with Shakespeare?  

In our practical workshops you will discover the best ways to engage and inspire children through a hands-on approach to discovering Shakespeare in the Primary Classroom.

Our workshops can help you to:

  • explore Shakespeare through a range of cross curricular activities
  • gain an understanding of the importance of genuine historical and archival research and evidence
  • creatively link learning to the primary curriculum
  • discover how to devise whole school Shakespeare themes and work with cluster schools
  • look at Shakespeare's plays in the context in which they were written
  • learn how to start your children on their journey with Shakespeare
  • prove to your pupils how Shakespeare is as relevant today as he was 400 years ago

Thoroughly enjoyable and relevant to both key stages. Great creative ideas.

This course is for all primary school teachers, whether they have a good understanding of Shakespeare or have simply watched Shakespeare in Love. All teachers will leave with increased confidence, a tool kit of resources and inspirational ideas ready to bring Shakespeare to life in the Primary classroom.

We are currently unable to deliver sessions on site in Stratford-upon-Avon, but if your school, academy chain or cluster is interested in booking a CPD workshop as an outreach session at your school, please email us at [email protected].

Well organised, fantastic resources and activities - going back to school with lots of activities
