We have started to read Hamlet. At the beginning of the story, we have been left to answer a controversial question....Should Hamlet avenge the death of his father? Should Hamlet kill his Uncle Claudius? As a class, we have thought of reasons 'for' and 'against' Hamlet avenging the death of his father. Then, we have had a debate.

We used our reasons 'for' and 'against' to help us write a discussion. Here are a few examples:

For our humanities, we have focused on Denmark as this is where Hamlet was set. To begin, we labelled a map of Europe by using atlases to help us and we have been able to locate Denmark on the map. Also, we have labelled a map of Denmark and researched the physical and human characteristics of the country. We have learnt a lot about this country, for example:

  • It is in Europe.
  • Copenhagen is the capital city.
  • Their currency is the Danish krone.
  • Lego was founded in Denmark.
