This William Shakespeare resource package is an introduction to Shakespeare’s rich, Elizabethan language. Looking particularly at songs from ‘The Tempest’ and ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’

Professor Francis Bacon is your guide – and he has a large box crammed with (until now) unknown first drafts of songs Shakespeare featured in his plays. Unfortunately, each draft is, well, a bit of a mess and in real need of editing.

To almost quote Eric Morecambe, it’s the right words but not necessarily in the right order.

The songs featured here are from ‘The Tempest’ and ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’ and the focus is on the end rhymes of the songs. It’s a different activity for each song, but the invitation to young readers is to do the editing and in so doing, play with and engage with the language in an active, creative way.

As with a lot of Shakespeare’s work this presentation is littered with Shakespearean insults. So, don’t have young readers that are lumpish, guts-griping maggot-pies. Turn them into precious, honey-tongued editors!

As well as the presentation, this package includes all necessary texts for photocopying and editing. Ideal for solo, paired or group work.

Ideal for children in Upper KS2 and KS3.

William Shakespeare - Exploring His Rich Language and Great Insults

The four resources in this bundle are all suitable for children in upper KS2 and KS3. These presentations are an introduction to Shakespeare’s rich, Elizabethan language. They consist of: 1\. William Shakespeare - His Rich Language and Rude Words and Insults. (PowerPoint lesson) Here the children look at ‘The Tempest’ and ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’ and the focus is on the end rhymes of the songs. It’s a different activity for each song, but the invitation to young readers is to do the editing and in so doing, play with and engage with the language in an active, creative way. 2\. Edit Shakespeare's Language and Become a Wide-Eyed Waffle-Cake. (PowerPoint lesson) Here the children look at ‘The Tempest’ and songs from ‘Cymbelene’ and ‘Hamlet’. The problem is that the songs’ lines and their verses have been hopelessly jumbled. The challenge is to edit these line and verses into their correct order. 3.William Shakespeare - Lost Treasures and a Shopping List. (PowerPoint lesson) Here the children look at songs in ‘The Winter’s Tale’ and ‘Twelfth Night’. In one case the t lines from two songs have somehow become mixed up and entangled and must be both re-ordered and separated into two separate pieces. Then we look at a song rich in items of the Elizabethan age. The draft gives these items in a separate list but unfortunately, they are missing from the text. The students are asked to insert them into the correct places to complete the song. 4\. William Shakespeare - Man of Mystery. We know very little about Shakespeare’s life. We know he was born in 1564, but we don’t know the exact date. He is buried in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-Upon-Avon but we don’t know exactly when he died. This PDF explores further this ‘Man of Mystery’ and his work. All the money raised from the sale of this resource goes to MedEquip4Kids. This is a local charity for children that works with medical staff, community nurses and other registered charities to provide equipment and improve facilities in hospitals.

Looks like a good resource, but I had to change the font on the PP as it was illegible.
