For Shakespeare Week in March, Year 2 learned about a famous play called Romeo and Juliet. We started by have a playtime! However, there were special rules to follow – greens had to keep away from the reds. No talking, playing or sharing was allowed between the two groups. After playtime, we had a discussion in class about how that would make us feel. Some children said sad, some children said miserable and some children said they hated having to be kept apart from their friends! We looked at the story of Romeo and Juliet and how the Matagues and the Capulets were two families who were kept apart – they just did not get on! Through the children’s film Gnomeo and Juliet, we looked at how two families (red gnomes and blue gnomes) don’t get on but Gnomeo and Juliet fall in love. Below you can see some of our pictures from this lesson.
