William Shakespeare

After watching a three-minute video detailing the life of William Shakespeare, scholars take part in several activities designed to show what they know about the famous writer. Learners read a series of eight sentences and put them in chronological order. Word work challenges pupils to listen to or read a word and match it to its corresponding picture. The same words can be found in a word search.
