Walker Primary School Inspiring a love of learning in a supportive community

Year 6

Below are some photos taken during the Shakespeare Workshop that Years 5 & 6 watched today. We took part in a fantastic version of Romeo and Juliet, which we all really enjoyed. Even though the actors used the proper Shakespearean language, we were able to follow the whole story. If you look closely, you might even spot Romeo dressed as Spiderman! It's Romeo and Juliet but not as you know it...
