English - Romeo and Juliet

This term we have been studying the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. We explored some of the story through drama to help us visualise the events and understand how all the characters fitted into the story.

Each group had a different part of the story to act out and after a short rehearsal, we acted out the whole story. It was interesting to point out all the different Romeos and Juliets in the class. Some of the scenes were acted out by everyone in the class. One of these was Act 1, scene 1 - the battle between the Montagues and the Capulets. Also, Act 1, scene 5 - The Banquet where some children played the different parts whilst others acted as directors. Adding costumes brought the scene to life and the writing of Lord Capulet’s diary entry certainly showed a good understanding of the play. 

Many of us are now choosing to read more plays written by Shakespeare and discussions about the merits of the different plays can be heard in the classroom.

Macbeth - The Battle Scene

Primary 5 pupils acted out their own battles to help them learn about the battle in Shakespeare's Macbeth between King Duncan's forces and Macdonwald, a treacherous noble, aided by the Norwegian king.

Macdonwald had lots of support from Irish and Scottish foot soldiers and cavalry and appeared very confident on the battlefield. For a while, it seemed as though he had luck on his side.

Macbeth, however, was able to overcome Macdonwald's confidence. Cutting his way through the soldiers, Macbeth made directly for Macdonwald. 

Macbeth was the hero of the battle, universally recognized and praised for his bravery and fighting ability.

How fierce do we look?
