We are nearly at the end of Term 2 which seems to have gone by in record time. It has been a very full term for the children and teachers alike. Next week we look forward to the infants performances for which they have been rehearsing with enthusiasm and focus. It is hard to overestimate the value that the children derive from engaging with the words of Shakespeare. Apart from the obvious benefits of developing confidence, learning to speak with clarity and being exposed to the best of our Western literary tradition, performing Shakespeare gives every child the opportunity to connect with their emotional intelligence.
