Dear Mr Shakespeare,
Happy 450th Birthday! I think you are the best playwright ever! I wish I could be a good writer like you.
Thank you for making me do excellent writing in this year's stressful writing competition. If it wasn't for you I wouldn't be here writing this well punctuated paragraph.
Thank you for bringing seventeen hundred words into my life. If you didn't make up the words so many things in my life wouldn't have made much sense.
My favourite play is Macbeth. I found out two weeks ago that another name for it is The Scottish Play.
My favourite quote from your "As you like it" is:
"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages."
It makes me wonder about our existence and what is real and what is imagined. We have an annual Shakespeare Festival here at John Colet School. We go to a theatre and perform in front of a lot of other people. Last year I played Macbeth in our class play.
Thank you for listening to my heartfelt letter.
Dear Mr Shakespeare,
Happy Birthday. I can't imagine being 450. Thank you so much for all the wonderful plays. My favourite is Romeo and Juliet. I have watched it over and over. I wonder what your favourite play is?
Here at John Colet School we do Shakespeare plays and we have a wonderful Shakespeare Festival. We perform our plays at the Glen Street Theatre.
Right now my great class is doing "Much Ado About Nothing". I play Beatrice with my friend Ella. She plays Beatrice 1 and I play Beatrice 2. The reason for this is that Beatrice has too many lines so we split it.
4N, my class, is not doing the entire play because it is too long. I would really love to do the whole play however, we are only going up to the part where Beatrice falls in love with Benedick. Oh! Did I mention that I have the last line of the play?
Anyway, thank you so much for all you have done for me. I really appreciate it.
Happy 450th Birthday! I would like to thank you for giving us your wonderful plays.
Your plays have helped our memories because of practising all this time and rehearsing.
I would like to say our class is doing "Much ado about nothing". We are doing this play because every year we have a Shakespeare Festival in your honour.
I'm also having trouble laughing when I do the embarrassing parts of Claudio.
Shakespeare, I hope you enjoy this letter. It really is an honour to write to you.
