On Tuesday the 10th May year 9 went to visit Shakespeare’s Birthplace in Stratford upon Avon. We drove there in two mini buses. It took us about an hour and a half to get there.
We went in to a room where we looked at a puppet of Shakespeare. We also looked at the hats that they would have worn and their bowls and spoons which were made out of metal.
We went inside Shakespeare’s home. We learnt that the best bedroom was down stairs and the second best bedroom was upstairs. We also learned that they did not have toilets so they had buckets beside their bed!
When we finished Shakespeare’s home we went into the gift shop and bought some things about Shakespeare. The budget of money we had to bring was £5.00.
Our favourite part was when we were finding interesting facts about Shakespeare and his life. Our favourite fact was that the best bedroom and the best bed was only for guests.
