5F are Shakespearian actors

April 25, 2022

Today we had a visit from a professional actor. She led us in a workshop based on our current English text – Macbeth.

We learnt some facts about Shakespeare, had fun generating Shakespearian insults and did lots of work on the story:

We did a lot of movement work, learning how to use our bodies to convey different characters and their emotions. We created freeze frames of different scenes in the play, recreated some key sections of dialogue and got the know the play really well. By the end of the session it was clear how much the children had developed their drama skills.
