In English we have been learning about the witches from Macbeth by William Shakespeare. We did a performance of our own spell. We included the ingredients a hogs head, a cows toe, and a dogs leg. In our performances we had to have a croaky voice to sound like a witch.
Things we needed to remember to do whilst acting are:
- Project your voice
- Emphasise certain words
- Be in character,but not silly
- Remember your lines
- Believe in yourself (self-belief)
In Literacy we have been learning and acting Macbeth and the Witches. We have made up our own spells with rhymes and choruses. We started off thinking of the best crazy ingredients and we put them in our spells. Examples;( guts of an elephant,eyeballs of a snail, liver of a crocodile, slime of slugs.)
We thought of rhymes and verses to put in our spell.We practised performing our spell and we gave each other parts.
Two weeks ago, Year 3 began their journey to become space biologists, embarking on a voyage of discovery by growing seeds that have been into space.
Since sowing the seeds, over half of them have germinated! We will continue to record measurements and observations of the seeds as they grow.
