In the Classroom:
Last week in Form 5, we looked at The Story Machine by Tom McLaughlin as part of our school’s book week. We focused on a particular scene where our main character (Elliott) discovers a typewriter. We talked about the impact of the torchlight in the scene, showing us how the most important objects were featured. We also discussed how different points of view can change our focus, and the children made drawings of the scene from the perspective of different characters.
We also began work for our project for this term. We are studying Macbeth by William Shakespeare, and began our rehearsals last week by looking at the use of language and character within a play. You can see a picture here of our class working wall, describing some of the questions our class came up with about the challenges of staging a professional play. Our project-based learning will also include some of the contexts surrounding Shakespeare’s time (particularly the Tudor era), along with writing opportunities including character and setting descriptions.
