‘All the World’s a Stage’

Theme Focus - Shakespeare

‘All the world's a stage,And all the men and women merely players.’

This quest is closely linked to the year 5/6 production of ‘The Tempest.’ All children will play a role in this important end of year event, from behind the scenes to a major part. There will be opportunities for set design, mini film production as well as marketing material. Studying Shakespeare in such a relaxed atmosphere, sets the children up for future literacy learning in secondary school.

Art and Design

Props, set and costume design for our performance of ‘The Tempest’ by William Shakespeare.

Also, ticket design and posters to promote the production.

Summer Term 2, 2013

Year 5 and 6


Our learning journey will encompass the twin towns of Wells and Glastonbury – Bad Durkheim and Patmos. We will compare and contrast the social and economic structure of each place.


This term, year 5/6 will be writing a persuasive leaflet for ‘The Tempest’ as well as studying play scripts. We will also be looking at the cultural similarities and differences between Wells, Glastonbury and their twin towns.


For year 6, we will be learning about changes to our bodies and how to deal with them. Also, relationships as well as how babies are made.

Year 5 will be thinking about conflict resolution in order to be trained as mediators.

It is VITAL that your children learn their times tables to improve the speed and accuracy of their calculations. Please help them to do so.


We will learn the songs for ‘The Tempest’ including any percussion accompanyment as needed.

Personal Development

We’ll be readying ourselves for life in year 6 or the Blue School.

To enable progress, it is important that we create and foster independent learning. We are asking for your support and assistance at home!
