Shakespeare starter tasks for every subject!

Shakespeare starter tasks for every subject!

I’ve designed this for the whole school, specifically to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday. There are some video links for students to watch but there should be a link to each subject (apart from ICT - apologies) The idea is that students are made aware of the idea that Shakespeare is applicable to every subject and not just English. There are also form time activities for students to complete with tutors.
