- Character – meeting a Shakespearean character for the first time and finding out more about them by bringing your imagination and experience to the front
- Performance – discovering what types of performing creates a scene and a scene into a play. Exploring how we use our bodies and actions to tell a story!
- Rhythm – learn the rhythms of iambic pentameter and the poetic bars that inspire rappers to this day and had the Elizabethans on the edge of their seats
- Text – Breaking down old words and finding out what they mean to us, so that we can recreate our own versions and perform them in a way we understand.
