A misty, dank morning at Middleham Castle made a stunning setting for our performance of Macbeth.
From learning quotes to writing our own potion poems, from making props and designing costumes to learning our lines, it was undoubtedly a fitting climax to our work on Shakespeare. A gaggle of shivering family and friends (and a few bemused tourists!) gathered in the ruins of the castle keep, and we finally had our audience! And boy, did we entertain!
Thank you to those people who came along to watch and provide us with an audience, and thank you to all the parents and grandparents who helped out with costumes and learning lines! And what did the children think about their experience? 7, 8 & 9 years old may seem young to be studying Shakespeare, but a cracking, action-packed story certainly captured the hearts and minds of Class 2!
