Thee, thou, thy off!

After playing about with the language of Shakespeare yesterday and thee, thou and thy, today we learnt how to use them and when. We wrote a range of sentences using the different types today, with the context of being Duke Theseus speaking to Hermia, Egeus, Lysander and Demetrius.

We also looked at using a thesaurus to find more interesting synonyms to give our sentences more impact. Finally we investigated a range of Shakespearean insults that could be used with the various ways of saying 'you',

To conclude the lesson we held a thee. thou, thy off between the class and Mr Roberts.

Here is a video of this vicious battle.
