BDA Shakespeare Week

Ms Grainger: It's been 450 years since the birth of one of the most celebrated British writers of all time. During our Shakespeare Week at BDA, we've been exploring our own and others’ opinions of Shakespeare by investigating suspicious goings on with various characters in the library and creating our very own neologisms - just like he did!

Some particularly interesting new words were “conaffle” meaning very confused from 9B; “Blop” to ask someone how their day is going from 7N and 8L’s word “verangry” to express especially strong annoyance. I hope to be hearing lots of our new vocabulary around the school.

It's brilliant to see how enthusiastic both staff and students are when taking on such a challenging topic. Will you be booking a trip to the Globe for the new season?
