10:30am - 11:00am BREAK TIME

Make the most of your break time, you can: go for some fresh air, have a snack, colouring, watch a newsround clip, etc..

 

11:00am - 12:15pm LITERACY/READING 

We are moving onto focus onto Macbeth, which should have been our focus this term. 

 

!!!!BEFORE YOU START TODAY'S WORK!!!!

I would like you to write your prediction about what is the story is going to be about. I will post on ClassDojo asking for you to write your predictions on the post. 

 

Activity 1: Watch video and complete comprehension questions

You will need to click on the following link to access the lesson resources. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/english-ks2-macbeth-ep1/zfqv8xs .

Your first task is to watch the video (the weird sisters) and take notes about what is happening, as this will help you complete your comprehension and writing task.

After you have watched the video, I would like you to complete the comprehension questions below.

Activity 2: Who are the witches? What do they look like?

Your next activity is to think about the witches. Who were they and what were they like. I would like you to look at the extract below and use your inference skills to see what the extract tells you about the witches. With an adult, you may want to google depictions of the witches from Macbeth in productions and artwork. Do they all look the same? 

 

 

 

I would like you to draw your own picture of what you think the witches look like. Use the pictures and extract to guide your drawings.

 

Activity 3: Write a summary of 'The Weird Sisters'

It is very important that this task is done properly as it will help you in future lessons.

I would like you to summarise what has happened in the video. Remember, when we are summarising something, we are just retelling what has happened. I am looking for some specific features to be done in your writing, which are: speech and descriptive language. When I read your writing, I should be made to feel like I am watching the video again. This is where your notes will come in useful, especially if they are done well. You can also use the video to help. Try your best 6T.

12:15pm - 1:15pm LUNCH TIME

 

1:15pm - 2:30pm FOUNDATION - HISTORY

Today, I would like you to do some history work. We have been looking at William Shakespeare so far. I would like you to make a timeline of his life. You can present this in any way you want. You could: make a video, draw a timeline, make a Powerpoint, etc. It is completely up to you how you do it. Below, I will list some questions to help you structure your timeline. Remember, you need to include dates and key points for each event on your timeline. Also, your timeline needs to be in chronological order, can you remember what this means?

Questions to help you form your timeline:

  • When and where was he born?
  • Did he get baptised? 
  • When did he leave school?
  • Was he married?
  • Did he have any children?
  • What were the key events in his career?
  • When did he die?
