Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

Twelfth Night Activity Pack

The beauty of this resource is that the wealth of engaging activities, with at least two activities for every scene, allows the teacher to find stimulating work at any time!

Drawing on the comic nature of the play, there is at least one fun drama activity for every scene to ensure active learning and appreciation of Shakespeare’s craft as a playwright.

Perfect assessment preparation
The exam-related activity for each Act and written tasks throughout focus students on being able to answer extract-based questions and questions on 'the novel as a whole' — fulfilling essential requirements for exams and controlled assessment.

The different types of activities include:

  • Group/paired discussion
  • Directing a production of the play
  • Creating a film trailer
  • Writing diary/blog entries for a character
  • Role-playing and hot-seating
  • Quotation quests for themes/characters
  • Writing letters/emails/texts between characters

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4030)
"It's very comprehensive." K McLoughlin, English Teacher and Satisfied Customer
'This resource gives a detailed knowledge of the play with analysis of quotations, character profiles and extension activities.The suggestions for further studies- you tube examples and activities on present day similarities will give each student a comprehensive knowledge of the play in order to tackle exam questions. I liked the initial summary of the play as this often overcomes the barrier of Shakespeare`s language and encourages further study. The examples of annotation are very useful too and would help students to annotate pertinent speeches with their own personal notes to guide them.' S Fallon, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'I wish all GCSE material was of this high standard! An excellent resource which would really support a teacher as they studied Twelfth Night with a GCSE class. It is matched to the specifications but retains a real sense of exploration and fun. The worksheets move systematically through the text, promoting understanding and also focusing on key transferable skills such as annotating texts. Research tasks are dynamic and work on stage craft is physically active, allowing the students to fully participate at every stage. There is reference to, but not reliance on, film and stage versions of the play throughout the pack. This enhances multimodal learning.The character quotation pages near the end of the pack would be particularly useful for a teacher looking at voice. The worksheets are cleverly structured so they would be equally useful to a Foundation Tier or Higher tier student. I would definitely purchase this resource, as it is so comprehensive that a teacher would not have to worry about planning lessons, but instead could concentrate on reading/ performing/ experiencing the play as a class, and on marking the students work.'
