 This week you will be writing a setting description as part of a play script! Watch the videos, pause when prompted and complete the activities. 



In this lesson, we will look at the author William Shakespeare and the time period in which the play, 'Macbeth', was written. Then we will explore different types of plays and end on a brief introduction into the play.


Tuesday In this lesson, we will look at the text type features of a play - mainly the layout and how this is different to other text types. We will then read aloud the opening of the play and check for meaning of vocabulary. After that, we will picture the setting from reading the opening and draw our own interpretation of the settings. Lastly, we will write a sentence about the opening.



In this lesson, we will look at two types of figurative language in detail: simile and personification. We will then have a go at writing our own sentences with a type of figurative language. Next, we will generate vocabulary (adjectives, verbs and adverbs) for the opening scene of Macbeth using the Animated Macbeth clip as a stimulus. Lastly, we will write two sentences using the vocabulary generated.



In this lesson, we will use a clip from Shakespeare's Animated Tales and pictures from the clip to plan adjectives, verbs, adverbs, figurative language and adverbial phrases for each section of the clip.


Friday In this lesson, we will use the plan from the previous lesson to write a description of the play's setting. The success criteria will be shared and we will use this to help us to complete the writing. In sections, the teacher will model writing the setting description whilst using the plan and success criteria to develop ideas. Students will then begin their own writing.



Hello Mr Warbucks! For your enquiry we need you to keep rehearsing your lines! Practice with an adult in your household. Focus on projecting your voice, expression and body language!
