Today I performed an abridged version of Macbeth…

We performed an abridged version of Macbeth in Year 5 with Ms Preston and Miss Cunningham. 

I was excited to get the part of one of the witches and started practising so I could be an amazing Shakespeare witch. I liked that a play written such a long time in was still relevant for us. We used movement, dance and song to bring it to life and it was exciting to study Shakespeare in this way.

I recognised the personality traits and behaviours of different characters from Shakespeare’s day in my world today with a desire for power and the ugliness of jealousy.
