Shakespeare


My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
 Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
 If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
 If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
 I have seen roses damask'd, red and white,
 But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
 And in some perfumes is there more delight
 Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
 I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
 That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
 I grant I never saw a goddess go;
 My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.
 And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
 As any she belied with false compare.


Here is a poster we did in Art for a competition about Shakespeare. You might like to read some of his plays or watch them at the theatre.


William Shakespeare died on 23rd April 1616. To honour this, UNESCO established 23 April as the International Day of the Book. However, these dates refer to different days: Spain had adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1582, but England was still using the Julian calendar. Shakespeare's death on 23 April 1616 (Julian) was equivalent to 3 May 1616 (Gregorian). This was 10 days after Miguel de Cervantes was buried and 11 days after he died.


The Tudor period is my favourite in England.
Try to do this puzzle of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second wife...it's harder than you think!

This is the last part of our history mural and you can see some project work too. Hope you like it!

This video talks about World War II and memories of some people who were children at the time:

Armistice Day is on 11th November and is also known as Remembrance Day. The red poppy is a symbol to remember all the people who died in the First World War and many people in Britain wear a poppy on this day. Here is a video about what happened last year at the Tower of London (probably my favourite London monument) when it was decorated with more than 888,000 red poppies - one for each person who died during the war. It was celebrated at 11am on the 11th of November 2014 because it was the 100 year anniversary of the end of the First World War. If you would like to know more about the conditions the soldiers fought in you could read some of the poems by war poets like Rupert Brooke or Wilfred Owen. Here is part of a war sonnet by Rupert Brooke where war is glorified, and below that, a poem by Wilfrd Owen telling the hard truth about the war and its suffering.
