Shakespeare Year 6

In Class 1, we learn in a variety of different ways, whilst having fun.  We know that we can achieve anything and that we have the power to lead change in our school, in the community and in the wider world.

Based on our work on ‘Flour Babies’ by Anne Fine, we have made our own flour babies and become full time parents!

We have been learning about living things and life cycles.

We have been learning about crime and punishment through the ages.

We have produced some creative interpretations of scenes from Macbeth.

Watch Taylor's amazing creation by clicking on the image below.

Class 1 have been using the forest school site to act out scenes from Macbeth.
