Shakespeare’s Theatre (KS2) Resources

Rich with historical evidence, this scheme of work will encourage your pupils to delve deep and answer genuine historical questions, including:

What was it like to be a child actor? How dangerous was it to live in Shakespeare’s theatreland? Why did Shakespeare have royal fans? What was the difference between the indoor and outdoor playhouses? Pupils will have the opportunity to evaluate primary and secondary sources and consider the impact of Shakespeare's work on Elizabethan society.

This Key Stage 2 History Curriculum scheme includes numerous cross curricular writing opportunities including diaries, newspaper reports and persuasive letters.
