Reading Course Term 2: Romeo and Juliet

To meet the requirements of the National Curriculum, this term we study a Shakespeare play. Focussing on character, language and form, we explore Shakespeare’s writing and learn how, although the language can present a barrier, the themes and ideas are timeless and universal. In these tutorials, we will discuss key scenes and examine important moments in the play in detail whilst contextualising them against the backdrop of the play as a whole.

Students will need to read/watch the play outside of tutorials. Tutorials will be a blend of direct teaching, group discussion and individual work. Students will receive feedback on their work during tutorials.

  • Tutorials – The tutorials are a blend of the tutor reading aloud, discussions about the novel and written work
  • Reading requirements – Students do not need to read/watch the play before the tutorials. However, students will need to read/watch the play outside of tutorials one the term is underway
  • Feedback and support – Students will receive live feedback on written work during tutorials using Google Classrooms. It is useful to have a Google account that they can use for this purpose
  • Homework – Optional homework opportunities provided.
