Discover Shakespeare with Two Minute Tales

Agnes Lesti
Agnes Lesti - September 2, 2020

Following the success of the first two seasons of Two Minute Tales, Season 3 has now landed on Hopster and this time it’s speedy tales of Shakespeare!

Designed for preschoolers, Two Minute Tales from Shakespeare tells classic Shakespeare plays with a surprising twist including Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, and King Lear.

Retold in a witty, speedy, and magical way, each episode introduces themes, characters, and quotes that are recognisable from the works of Shakespeare – with an additional episode about Shakespeare himself!

To support the series, we have created an activity pack for each episode, developed by our Head of Learning. It offers children a deeper understanding of the stories and the art of storytelling through learning activities, fun games, and crafts.
