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 - Text: Macbeth - Page 29 - The End!

Predict -

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.

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). 

 

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

 

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 directions

Orange and Red -  Include actions and speech directions

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

 

Maths - Percentages of an amount

 

Today you are going to need your division skills to help you begin to calculate percentages of an amount. Watch the video closely and then complete your worksheet.  I realise that this is new learning and some of you may find it difficult - if you find this tricky then please drop in on zoom at 11:30 on our usual meeting number and password and I will give you a little more help - please note this will be specifically for me to show you how to calculate percentages. (see you tomorrow for chats and games)

 

Green and Yellow - Complete questions 1 - 4 then complete the maze challenge question.

Orange and Red - Complete questions 1 - 4.

Blue - Today you will be learning how to calculate the perimeter of a rectangle. You will need to use your understanding of doubles - here is your video.

 

Foundation - PE & Storytime

PE - Choose an activity to do with your family

 

 Go for a walk (remember to follow the Covid safety guidelines) What can you see around your local area that has changed? Can you see any signs of spring coming yet? How is the weather different? Did you see any animals?

 

Joe Wickes

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

 

Dance with Oti

Type this in the search bar of your computer- or you can find it on BBC iplayer.

Can you join in with one of Oti's Boogie Beebies dances ( they are not as easy as you might think) 

 

 

Story Time - The Graveyard Book - by Neil Gaiman

Listen to my one of my favourite authors read one of his spooky tales here. Neil Gaiman wrote the Norse Mythology book we shared during out Viking work last year - the legends of Thor and Loki.  You can listen to 10mins each day or in blocks of how much time you prefer. We will listen to chapter 1 this week. I hope you enjoy it, let me know !
