Anthony and Cleopatra!
Beech class have enjoyed writing scenes from Shakespeare's play. They have included dialogue and stage directions. Today they began rehearsals, working in a group for each scene with a Producer and Stage Director. They are very excited to perform their scenes at our class assembly on Wednesday 30th October at 2.45pm- we do hope you can come along!
This week we have been studying the story of Anthony and Cleopatra - its all rather confusing with Mark Anthony's many wives, but we're looking forward to becoming mini Shakespeares and writing our own playscripts which we hope to be able to perform to parents in due course.
Mr Ireland has kindly donated some metallic poster paint pens which year 5 enjoyed using on their Egyptian masks for our display. Thank you Mr Ireland!
Some very excited children from Beech were very lucky to have a visit around Elham Manor House this morning! We were shown around by the owner, Patrick and are grateful to him for his knowledgeable insights. The children will be thinking about how to use their visit in their adventure story writing tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to reading their brilliant ideas!
Thank you for coming to visit Beech class this afternoon - it was great to see so many of you! For anybody who was unable to come and anyone with a memory like mine, here is the powerpoint with all the important info!
