It’s Shakespeare week at Thomas Buxton and Year 5 have been studying Macbeth – Shakespeare’s great tragedy. This week has been focused on debating and performance skills. In class we have been debating key ideas in the text using ABCDebate (agree, build, challenge, delve deeper). This lesson we practised responding to other’s points by delving deeper e.g asking for evidence or clarification.
Year 5 also took part in a performance workshop where they learnt how to act and developed their own interpretation of the play using their performance skills. It ended in a gruesome battle!
Here are some photos of the children’s work.
