Shakespeare Workshops for Primary Schools

Our shakespeare workshops for schools are aimed at KS1 and KS2. The children require no prior knowledge of the play, in fact we actively encourage teachers not to reveal the story before we arrive. The session is designed to be an interactive workshop whereby the children are encouraged to use their imaginations.

Bard Heads - Alternate take of Shakespeare's plays with a modern twist

Bard Heads

Bard Heads takes an up-dated look at some well-loved characters from six of Shakespeare’s most popular plays and imagines what might have happened next. Each 50 minute one man/woman show is full of laughter, tears and quite a few surprises. You will not need to know the parent play or even like Shakespeare to have a good night out!

Demystifying Shakespeare for Students of all Ages

FINDING THE WILL’s fervent desire is to show that the plays of Shakespeare are as accessible now as they were four hundred years ago. They are cracking stories full of passion, jealousy, betrayal, love, war and humour – as good as any Hollywood blockbuster movie today.

We demystify Shakespeare making it easy to understand, enjoyable, relevant and, above all else, fun! FINDING THE WILL offers shakespeare workshops for schools and adult groups designed to take the fear out of Shakespeare.

 


“The legacy has continued in that all the Shakespeare books are permanently out of the library.”

Year 6 Teacher, Nursteed Community Primary, Devizes

“Truly inspirational stuff!! It’s been wonderful to see the impact on all children. Quiet nervous ones emerging from shells, behaviour challenges focused and able children extended. Please don’t go!”

Ampfield Primary, Hants


Shakespeare Workshops

At FINDING THE WILL the ‘end’ we work towards is one where all who take part leave with an understanding, not only of the characters, plots and themes of a particular play, but an awareness that Shakespeare is as relevant today as it always was. To reach that end, a journey of individual confidence building and creative teamwork is undertaken.

FINDING THE WILL believes there are no wrong answers only interesting ideas. The children are continually encouraged to let their imaginations take flight, to empathise with and to articulate complex dilemmas of each principal character. By the end of the story all that have taken part have gone on a journey far beyond the confines of the play.
