About my creative response

Madeleine has used felt-tips on paper to draw this picture for the competition.


When have you been ‘true to yourself’?

“Maddy is her true self every day. Some days she is a tiger, a shark, a knight or a dinosaur. Some days she is a whale or a tree. She enjoys helping, making things and running really fast.”


What is your favourite Shakespeare quote/play/character and why?

Madeleine has seen ballet performances of Romeo and Juliet and enjoyed watching The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream on CBeebies (she liked seeing ‘Mr Tumble’ with donkey ears when he played Bottom, and laughed when ‘Line’ was pulling on the rope).
