To celebrate National Shakespeare Day 2022, pupils and teachers participated in a variety of Shakespeare themed lessons and activities.
Clues and puzzles were scattered around the College for a Shakespeare Character Hunt; in the library, there were intricate Shakespearean colouring sheets for the pupils to enjoy.
Years 7-9 took part in an array of activities, including Ophelia’s flower symbolism in ‘Hamlet’, writing anti-sonnets, and performing ‘The Most Lamentable Tragedy of Pyramus and Thisby’ in the College Hall. It was also wonderful to see some Year 5 pupils come and join the celebrations and create some outstanding anti-sonnets with Year 9.
Staff and pupils were encouraged to come dressed for the day with many of the College community taking the opportunity to dress as their favourite Shakespearean character.
All in all, a wonderful time was had by all marking the birthday of the Great Bard!
