Use this resource to help children explore and have fun with Shakespeare’s rich language – creating their own insults and inferring the meaning.

In Key Stage 2, pupils should study the work of William Shakespeare. He was a master wordsmith and his plays featured language that we still use today.

His writing contained many insults and cutting remarks that would make people wince even now!

Use this resource to explore the language he used to insult, and to create your own Shakespearean insults and infer their meaning.

It could be taught as part of a unit of work based on Shakespeare or as a fun lesson to celebrate his birthday in April.
