Tuesday 9th February
Below you will find all the learning for today. This includes reading, writing, maths and a foundation subject (Science, Geography, History, R.E, Computing, art or Design Technology). The coloured activities should be completed if your child is in that group in class. All reading texts and worksheets can be found at the bottom of the page, some reading texts will be posted Monday for use all week.
Reading - Graphic Novel: Macbeth - Picture 25 - 26 - The Wood Moves.
Before reading, draw you own illustration. Show the scene where the woods move towards Macbeths castle. I want to see your ideas, not just the image from the book copies. Add a narration box to explain what the images shows. Use speech bubbles to add dialogue from Macbeth and the guard.
'Macbeth new his end had come' - How was he so sure that this was the end for him? Make reference to the witches prophecies and events from the story.
Writing - Shakespeare: Macbeth
Today you are going to write the dialogue for your play. Look at the short video at the top of this page to help you.
When you write dialogue for a play you write the name of the speaker first and then what they say. You start a new line for each speaker. There are other things that you would include in a playscript but for today I would like you to just write the dialogue for your scene. For example:
SISTER 1: When shall we three meet again?
SISTER 2: In thunder, lightning or in rain?
SISTER 3: When the hurlyburly’s done! When the battle’s lost and won! SISTER 1: That will be ‘ere the set of sun.
SISTER 2: Where the place?
SISTER 3: Upon ... the heath. ALL SISTERS: There to meet ... Macbeth!
You need to write all the dialogue for your scene so it would end up much longer than this. Use your own ideas, you are a modern child. You are not expected to use old English, unless you want to.
If you need extra help, look at the page with the Queen on, in your playscript booklet, from Monday's page.
Green and Yellow - Chose a section of the play, it can be you favourite part. For this I want you to write out the dialogue of the characters - what they say. Set it out like the example above. Think of quality vocabulary choices from all the writing session we have completed on Macbeth.

Foundation - Computing: Power Points - Last Session
Today is the last day to work on your power points before emailing them to me so I can share them online. At this point you should have a collection of information and images, with their website sources on each slide.
Now it is time to make it look professional. By animating it.
Here is official Microsoft guidance on how to add animations to objects and slides.
Once complete have a final check. Check for these items:
When all of this has been checked, please email them to me via the usual email. I will be happy to post them on the class page once I have received them.
