Secondary: Workshops and tours

Lively Action Workshops

Suitable for: Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4, Key Stage 5

Our workshops encapsulate the spirit at the core of all our work – that plays should be explored actively. They can be based on any Shakespeare play and are delivered at the Globe, in your school or online.

Key activities

  • Practical, interactive workshop based on your chosen learning objective(s)
  • A range of activities and games designed to draw out elements of the plays’ characters and themes
  • Language-based activities that explore the text at word level
  • Explore a range of interpretations to encourage an informed personal response
  • We can substitute the workshop for a lecture on your play choice or original performance conditions. Please get in touch to discuss this option.
  • For on-site visits, a guided tour of the Globe Theatre; for online or in-school visits, a virtual tour of the Globe Theatre.

Available texts

Workshops can be run on any Shakespeare play.
For KS5, workshops can be designed to thematically link 2 – 3 plays.

Curriculum links

At key stages 3 and 4, workshops support students to;

  • Read challenging texts with good understanding
  • Acquire a wide vocabulary and develop confidence in the art of speaking and listening
  • Develop a greater appreciation of our rich and varied literary heritage
  • Use discussion in order to learn: be able to elaborate and explain their understanding and ideas
  • Use spoken language to prepare their ideas before they write

They also support progress towards the Assessment Objectives for GCSE English Literature;

  • Read, understand and respond to texts, and develop an informed personal response (AO1)
  • Familiarise themselves with textual references through script-work (AO1)
  • Analyse language and structure, but particularly form (AO2)
  • Understand the relationship between the text and the playing conditions (AO3)
  • Additionally, workshops can be thematically designed to support students with AO4: exploring connections across literary texts
