At the beginning of this term, we studied Macbeth by Shakespeare. Within this study, we used drama and role play to understand the key themes and characters of this historic play. We used the text to inspire us to write news reports based on King Duncan's death and internal monologues from Banquo's perspective. The children really enjoyed the story of the play even though it is quite gruesome! Once we had drafted our writing, we used a quill and ink to publish our work to display it in the same style as Shakespeare himself.
Look at our amazing display and read some of the children's writing below.
