Welcome to our Shakespeare section on iChild!

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616) was born in Stratford upon Avon and worked as a successful playwright and poet (or "bard") in London. No one is sure of his exact birth date, so legend has it that he was born and died on the same date, 23rd April.

He is our most famous poet, and possibly one of the greatest poets and playwrights in the world. Children learn about Shakespeare in school and many of his words and phrases live on in our every day language. Our activities celebrate the works of the "Bard of Avon".

Shakespeare Week is from Monday 20th to Sunday 26th March 2023.
