Your task ask due for Thursday this week, is to research the Shakespeare play The Tempest. Give a brief overview of what it is about (like the blurb on the back of a book). What do you think Shakespeare is trying to say to the audience?
Extension: how does this relate to our leadership island story?
Good luck! Any questions, see me before the lesson.

You need to re-write the question that you did before half-term. You will need to use the feedback I have given and the follow-up lesson notes to help you.

Over half-term I would like you to do some research on the Princes in the Tower, in preparation for your Speaking and Listening assessment.
For this assessment, you will be having a debate: did Margaret Beaufort or Richard III kill the princes?
I have split you up according to your colour groups:
Glen, Lucy P. & Max’s table: you will be arguing that Margaret Beaufort killed them
Annalise & Harry T’s table: you will be arguing that Richard III killed them
Find out why Margaret or Richard might have wanted to kill the princes. Bring your research along to the first lesson back after half term (Monday 2nd June).
Have a good holiday
