We begin by reading and deciphering the prologue.

We then work on understanding the plot through reading a comic strip version and taking part in a Romeo and Juliet play in a day.


We use all of this as a stimulus for our writing.


We write and create:

* A newspaper report about their tragic deaths.

* A love letter from Romeo to Juliet.

* An interview with Romeo.

Our class reader is 'Stormbreaker' by Anthony Horowitz.



It recounts the adventures of a child forced into becoming a superspy by MI6.

However his first adventure may be his last...
