Shakespeare Week - 18th-24th March 2019
Our focus for Shakespeare Week this year was the tale of Macbeth and it was a huge hit throughout the school!
This is our fantastic writing display in the School Hall:
Across the academy, we looked at a range of child-friendly versions of Macbeth and used lots of drama, speaking and listening, Design Technology, Computing and Art to inspire a range of fantastic writing opportunities. The children enjoyed the story and were very motivated to produce brilliant pieces of writing. Here are some examples of our fantastic work. We hope you enjoy looking at them!
We used drama to think about how Macbeth felt when he was
told he might become the King of Scotland and wrote letters to
tell Lady Macbeth the exciting news.
Year 3 - Drama
We used the drama technique 'Conscience Alley' to try and convince Macbeth with reasons why he should or should not overthrow King Duncan. We gave our persuasive arguments to Macbeth as he walked down the alley. At the end of the alley, Macbeth had to decide whether or not he should try and become the new King of Scotland.
Wait here to find out how we persuaded him...
YEAR 4 SEWING SKILLS
We were inspired by Macbeth’s deathly deed to create an image of a dagger using sewing skills. Some of us also included blood to represent Macbeth’s guilt of killing King Duncan.
We showed GROWTH MINDSET by persevering with our sewing even when we found it challenging!
Year 6 Radio Reporters
As we were so shocked by Macbeth's terrible actions, we decided to become news reporters to
report on the unfortunate events leading up to Banquo's death.
We hope you enjoy listening to some of our reports!
If you would like to listen to the rest of our reports, visit the Year 6 class pages.
Year 6 Newspaper Reports
We then used our knowledge of being reporters and produced a
newspaper report on Banquos's death.
Here are some of our reports;
the rest can be read on the Year 6 class pages.
Year 6 Art Work
As part of our Shakespeare week, we were lucky enough to try
a Shakespearean themed lunch.
