The DfE is conducting a review of the primary and secondary National Curriculum.
This site contains the statutory programmes of study for National Curriculum subjects which maintained schools must follow until a new curriculum is in place.

Exploring viewpoint in The Tempest

Using these materials pupils will look at how Shakespeare uses language to create complex views of character and setting. Pupils will focus particularly on the effects of Shakespeare’s choices of language in The Tempest in portraying: a) the island and b) Prospero and Caliban. Pupils will also explore and comment on Shakespeare’s possible purposes and viewpoints, and their overall effect on the audience, in creating the characters of Prospero and Caliban.
