English KS2: Shakespeare Retold
Shakespeare Retold is a series of ten stories written by well-known children’s authors. Each story is inspired by or based on a play by William Shakespeare. These are not straight retellings but stories with a spin, told only the way each individual author could tell them. Some are closer to the original play than others. The stories are intended as a very light introduction to some of the characters and themes found in Shakespeare’s plays and have been written to appeal to children at KS2.
