 Autumn Term's theme- ‘All the World’s A Stage’

This term, Year Five are exploring the theatre. We start the term by learning about Britain’s greatest playwright, William Shakespeare, and his legacy on the English language. We focus our studies around ‘Macbeth’, exploring the settings, motivations and history of the play through many drama and writing opportunities. Later this term, the children will be working with practitioners from The Royal Shakespeare Company as they participate in a workshop in Stratford -Upon -Avon. In addition to learning about Shakespeare in Tudor times, children will find out about Tudor music and be introduced to music notation. Of course, we will also be learning to sing songs from the shows! After half term, we will be looking at theatre throughout the ages, focussing on Greek, Roman and Victorian theatre.
