Hello I am Finlay and I am from Year 8 at Bexleyheath Academy and I am here to report on the Year 8 students work on SHAKESPEARE !

Year 8 have been closely analysing a lot of Shakespeare's plays such as Richard III and Macbeth. Before looking at Shakespeare at Bexleyheath academy, I found it hard to understand the language used, but our class has created some performances which helped me to thoroughly understand what it meant. When studying Shakespeare, we have discovered that each play can be romantic, comedic, scary or it can be in the original Shakespearean style. It's amazing how we can change the whole feel of the play by changing how you say the words! Performing made Shakespeare fun and helped me, and many other students understand the language that is used.
