Year 5 Sarah-Jane’s class History Topic – Shakespeare

Since it’s the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, we have been learning about his life. Here are some facts about him:

  • he was born on April 23rd 1564 and died on 1616
  • he was a poet as well as a playwright
  •  he was in an acting group called ‘The Chamberlain Men’
  • because of the plague all of the theaters were shut down and Shakespeare found that times were hard but The Ural of Southampton liked his plays so he offered to give him money if he produced plays for him

This is one of the subjects we have been learning about. I hope you have learnt something new.
