This morning in Literacy we have been learning about The Life of William Shakespeare. We had 15 minutes to read and remember facts about his life. We then used this information to create a group poster. Which facts can you remember?
Facts about Henry VIII - I know he had 6 wives but I would be very interested to read some more facts. I'd love you to let us all know what you have remembered from what you did together today. I'll check again tomorrow to see if anyone does.
He added 1700 new words to the English language.
Well I genuinely didn't know that. That's very interesting. Can you give me some examples of the words he added Lucy.
He added words like puke to the English language!
It was really interesting when we were writting that down.
He loved birds and dogs very much and he mentonied birds over 600 times and dogs over 200 times!
Jacob told me that Henry VIII invented the word puke... How lovely!
William Shakespeare invented words such as 'puke'.... Not King Henry VIII. Who can remember any other facts about his life? Please share them.
