Mrs Millar’s 2nd year class are studying Romeo and Juliet. Since they’ve now finished reading the play, we’ve asked them to select any topic connected with it and write an article for their blog.
The class have have come up with some fascinating ideas to investigate, such as:
- the life of William Shakespeare
- marriage in the Middle Ages
- the city of Verona
- Bubonic plague
- Queen Mab
- Romeo and Juliet in music
- did Shakespeare really write the plays?
Now, if you haven’t read the play, some of that will seem very strange, but trust me, it all makes sense.
