Understanding The Bard!

Year 6 have been learning and understanding many phrases from Shakespeare’s play. We have discovered that many of these phrases are still used today. The children learned and explained what lots of the phrases meant and decorate a silhouette of Shakespeare with them.

Can you explain any other terms?


During book week, Year 6 have been researching and reading many of Shakespeare’s plays. They have been given a variety of information regarding many of the plays and from this have created a variety of infographics. Infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly.

Take a look at the infographics Year 6 have created!

Year 6 imagined that they were lucky enough to attend Lord Capulet’s ball. They imagined they were a character from Romeo and Juliet and would have had access to social media. The children thought about the ‘tweets’ that may have been posted  during the event! You can see the live stream from the ball on the Selsdon Primary Twitter page! @SelsdonPrimary

Red Carpet Interviews

Today, Year 6 became interviewers and were able to interview many of the guests who were attending Lord Capulet’s ball on the red carpet. Each child took on the part of one of the ball guests (these included Romeo, Juliet, Lord Capulet and Tybalt) and analysed how those different guests would have been feeling about the ball. There was great use of Shakespearean language.
