27 Sep Year 6 Macbeth Workshop
Our Year 6 pupils took part in a fantastic workshop on Monday. Actors from the Young Shakespeare Company performed Shakespeare’s mesmerizing story of ambition, guilt and revenge in a fast-moving fully-costumed interactive production. The play was brought vividly to life around and among the children, at times including the whole audience to create such dramatic scenes as the meeting between Macbeth and the witches, the royal banquet at which Macbeth sees Banquo’s ghost and the thrilling battle in which Macbeth comes face to face with his greatest enemy Macduff.
Throughout the performance the workshop enabled the children to become actively involved in the play through a carefully structured range of drama and language activities. The children will use this workshop to inspire their own writing when creating a playscript based on the story.
