Year 4 had a great trip to the nearby Shakespeare’s Globe this week. This was the early stage of a fantastic new drama project that will take Year 4 all the way through until the end of the summer term. Working closely with our actor friends, we are going to be examining in great detail some of the characters contained in Macbeth. Having been given a guided tour of the famous theatre, Year 4 were then invited to attend a workshop with some of the professional actors at The Globe. We looked at some of the character traits in the play, and in particular explored the themes of the King, the warrior, the carer and the trickster. We will be developing this theme over the coming weeks to see how the character of Lady Macbeth contains many of these different themes. The Globe project will end with Year 4 being filmed, performing extracts from Macbeth. You can catch up with all The Globe action in the podcast below.
