Hello Team Willow!
I hope you are all well.
Happy St. George's Day - the patron saint of England. Perhaps you could make a flag to decorate your window to celebrate! Can you find out about St. George - why was he made a saint? What is he famous for doing?
It is also the anniversary of William Shakespeare' birthday in 1564 and also the day he died in 1616. This is the beginning of one of my favourite poems:
'Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Shakespeare's Sonnet 18
Shakespeare invented over 422 new words, wrote over 40 plays and wrote 154 sonnets ( a special type of poem). What a clever man! Can you name one of his plays? Which character did you dress up as during Book Week? Maybe you could put your costume on today, in celebration of his birthday!
