Reading - Text: Macbeth - Page 29 - The End!

Before you read, how do you think our tale will end? What do you hope will happen? Who will be king when all is said and done?

Clarify -

  • yield - 
  • triumph - 
  • slackened - 

Question -

  1. 'Macbeth's sword slackened in his hand', why did Macbeth release the grip on his sword?
  2. Why was Macduff full of pain? (2 Marks)
  3. Who was to become the next king?

Summary -

How does the story make you feel now that it is over? Was it a good tale? Why? Give examples of what makes you feel like you do about this tale. 

 

Writing - Shakespeare: Macbeth

When you write a playscript you not only need to tall the actors what to say but you also need to tell them how to say it, for example loudly or whispering and you also need to tell them what to do while they are speaking - these are called the stage directions.

You might add that the witches were stirring the pot, dancing around it, pointing to the sky and cackling. For example:

1st Sister: (dances around the pot cackling) When shall we three meet again?

2nd Sister: When the hurlyburlys done when the battles lost and won. 

3rs Sister: There to meet Macbeth...upon the heath

 

(All 3 sisters move around the stage in a creepy fashion, looking mischievious and like they are up to no good. They leave and Macbeth and Banquo enter, walking slowly, tired from battle). 

 

Watch the second video clip and read the information about 'show not tell'. I would like you now to add the stage directions to the section of the play you have been working on this week. In your example booklet, look at the page with the white rabbit to show you how to write these.

Green and Yellow  - Include actions and speech adverbs to direct the actors. 

Orange and Red - Include actions and speech adverbs to direct the actors. 

Blue - Tell me how each person speaks. (Slowly, quickly, loudly)

 

Maths - Measuring: 

Green Yellow  Orange and Red - Watch the video and follow long here. The work is further development on perimeter. You need to remember what the term perimeter means as later this week will also look at area. This information on BBC Bitesize might help you. Your sheet is below. 

Blue - Today you will comparing lengths in mm and cm. Your lesson can be found here. How many mm make 1 cm? Well use the scale below to jog you memory.

Your sheet for today can be found below. Have a go. Let me know if you need any help.

 

Foundation - PE - Choose 1 activity at least  to do with your family

Go for a walk (remember to follow the Covid-19 safety guidelines)

Can your child on one or all of these days take part in this exercise class. Its a good way to keep up an active lifestyle while in lockdown.
