Writing - Shakespeare: Macbeth - Character description

**This work will take today and tomorrow and needs to be written at length using all the skills we have learnt in this unit of work and before. Write 2 paragraphs today and 2 tomorrow, your work should be longer than 1 side of A4 paper.**

In this lesson, we will use the plan from the previous lesson to write about Macbeth's character with a main focus on two aspects of his character: at the start of the play when he is depicted as a warrior and later on when he becomes ambitious. During the lesson, the teacher on the video will model how to use the plan and the success criteria to write two paragraphs of the character description.

Green and Yellow - Write 2 paragraphs about Macbeths Character at the first 2 key events of the story. Use:

  • relative clauses (Macbeth, who was crippled with guilt, entered the room)
  • noun phrases (loud thunder)
  • prepositions (positional language)
  • figurative language (simile and personification)
  • Any other grammar skills known.

Foundation - Computing

This week we are continuing the power points made last week. You need to continue to gather information and images about your chosen topic. This will require you to use the search engine skills we have developed since the start of January.  This week I want to focus on the use of images. Here is a recap of how to copy best quality images:

  • Try clicking on the image,
  • Then right click (long press on phones) and choose open image in new tab.
  • This should give you a good idea of how big the image is. A small image if stretched ends up pixelated and unclear. Try to find a larger image. 
  • Then right click (long press) and save the image.
  • Note: the mobile version of Google Images does have search tools too (its at the extreme right in the bar with tabs for web, images, videos etc.) Here you can search for large images. 

For each image you use you also need to add a reference of where the image is sourced from. As we have spoken about copyright before. To do this, right click an image and copy image address. Put this at the bottom of the slide that the image is on.
