“Last Wednesday, Red Class had an exciting Shakespeare Workshop prepared and delivered by Caroline Seed – the children had the opportunity to act some of the scenes from his plays and I know they particularly enjoyed shouting Shakespearean insults at each other. It was a great introduction to what can sometimes seem a challenge for primary aged children. Thank you Caroline.”

“I learned a lot about the plays and characters. And I found out all the dates and facts about Shakespeare……. I particularly enjoyed acting with the dagger and props……I loved it so much I want to do more. I wish it was longer and overall I learned a lot and did loads of acting.”

“Before this workshop, I didn’t know anything about Shakespeare apart from I knew his name and he wrote plays. It was very fun and happy. I absolutely extremely enjoyed it.”
