Explore England’s greatest bard

At Key Stage Two, children will benefit from dipping a toe into the mighty (and often daunting) Shakespearean ocean. Being introduced to the Bard, and gaining an understanding of his impact, will hopefully leave them eager to explore the depth of his work later on. Don’t forget, members can also access the Interactive resource , ‘The fame game – William Shakespeare’. The game is a series of clues – pictures, text and audio – that the children work through to guess the famous person. The final slide reveals the person and a biography. All readers can also download Activity sheet , ‘Essential facts – Portrait of the Bard’.
