Writing poetry inspired by Shakespeare’s plays is a great way to
 cement understanding and celebrate learning, particularly around
 specific scenes. Once pupils begin to think themselves part of the 
scenery, their imaginations seem to more easily ‘ fill in’ the space
 around them, taking in not just the physical space but the atmosphere
and mood in the room.

The chandelier in the Capulet’s Hall has a
completely unique view of Romeo and Juliet’s first meeting and 
Personification Poetry is a perfect framework to capture this. The 
collaborative nature of the activity takes all the initial pressure off, yet every child will end up with their own original poem - and their own vision of a key moment in the play.
