Macbeth - 3rd November

 

On the 3rd November, the Young Shakespeare Company returned to our school, this time to perform Macbeth. The children were instantly engaged, as the actors set the opening scene. The children were asked to make the sounds of the weather and the sounds of the animals that might be found on the heath , on the fateful day that Macbeth and his friend Banquo, met the 'weird sisters'. Slowly the tale unfolded and different children were asked to take on roles from the play. As you can see in the photographs, one became the King of Scotland. It was a mesmerizing and at the same time a very emotional performance, which has the children still talking about it, weeks later!
