Sherlock Holmes, a creation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is undoubtedly one of the world’s most famous fictional detectives. What better way to get children hooked on English mysteries than to introduce them to the dangerous and exciting world of Holmes? Well, that’s just what we launched this summer at Shakespeare School, a summer course dedicated to all mystery-loving fans in the fourth and fifth grades!
What did the aspiring assistant detectives have to do in this course? Well, besides reading 4 thrilling mysteries, the children had to show off their acting skills in a play called The Three Students, which is another Holmes mystery. They also had a variety of drama activities, competitions, movie clips and games on the interactive white board! Apart from that, the children learned about life during the Victorian times and were thus introduced to a bit of British history.
It was a truly fun-packed course as you will see from the photographs and comments below. For more photos, please visit our album on Facebook.
