Spring Term 1
This half-term, our topic is Older Literature.
We focus our learning on 'Romeo & Juliet' by William Shakespeare.
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.
Would you call Romeo a hero? Why?
Our class reader is 'Stormbreaker' by Anthony Horowitz.
