Pupils ease into secondary school with Shakespeare

Some of the newest pupils to join schools in East London have been given a helping hand to make new friends - from William Shakespeare.

The project - run by The Globe Theatre - sees year six pupils learn about Shakespeare's works in their final term of primary school, before being given the chance to perform as they move to high school.

Year seven pupils at the Royal Docks Community School have been working on a Midsummers Night's Dream.
