Today, some children in Year 5 have worked alongside Shakespeare for Schools to produce a ‘Play in a Day’ whilst others have been producing trailers, tickets and posters for the performance later in the day. After warming up their bodies and vocals, the children focussed on acting in the role of different characters. This included using freeze frames, shadowing each other with word reminders and performing scenes which focussed on the battle scene and the magnificent banquet. The end result was a magnificent play which was performed in front of an audience of their peers. Well done to everyone for all their hard work today.
Marty Jopson’s Mini Beast Safari
Y5W thoroughly enjoyed the Marty Jopson's Mini Beast Safari which was a live lesson streamed from The Grammar School at Leeds. He took the children on a journey looking at a range of minibeasts of varying sizes - from spiders to cells living in your mouth. He showed the children what the different minibeasts look like under a microscope. Some of the children were a little squeamish at the images. It was an interesting and engaging lesson.
