Year 5 Great British Writers Week- Shakespeare

By Dede Pourahmadi on Tuesday, May 24, 2016

 

 

During Great British Writers Week, children worked on a short section of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare. Children understood this would be challenging from start to finish but were guided through the play script.They showed a great understanding of characters’ feelings, actions and performed the ending part of the play.  Although most of them were unfamiliar with Shakespeare and didn’t understand the language fully, their enthusiasm and love of acting was enough to carry them through the tale.

  1. How does Shakespeare portray the characters of Hermia and Helena?
  2. What will be Hermia’s fate if she refuses to marry Demetrius?

This lesson we had was very fun and a bit scary because when 5L came in to watch us ,I felt a bit shy and then I got the hang of it. There was a lady named Alexandra who told us how to act like real actors which helped me how to act.
