Our class Twitter project @lps140club held a poll to find out what the people who follow us and other Twitter users consider to be William Shakespeare's best piece of work. The question was tweeted to our followers and then the class made a celebrity twitter hit list to tweet their question to.
The response we got was fantastic and added to the votes from the pupils in our class, the total votes was 66. We had such a fantastic variety of people responding too and were thrilled to be supported by followers and twitter users who retweeted our request to their own followers. We even managed to get some responses from a few celebrities; Charlie Higson, Pie Corbett, Tanni Grey-Thompson, Gabby Logan, Rick O'Shea, Nigel Owens, David Roberts, Jamie Baulch and the Minister for Education and Skills Leighton Andrews.
The results to our very close vote were as follows:
1. A Midsummer Night's Dream - 17 (25.7%)
2. Macbeth - 15 (22.7%)
3. Romeo and Juliet - 12 (18.2%)
4. Much Ado About Nothing - 3 (4.5%)
5. Hamlet - 2 (3%)
- Henry IV Part 1 - 2 (3%)
- Henry V - 2 (3%)
- King Lear - 2 (3%)
- Merchant of Venice - 2 (3%)
- The Tempest - 2 (3%)
- Twelfth Night - 2 (3%)
6. Anthony and Cleopatra - 1 (1.5%)
- As You Like It - 1 (1.5%)
