Year 5 half term homework: Macbeth
The year 5 play - Macbeth - is to be performed at the end of term 4. This half term homework is to prepare.
The first part of preparing is learning lines. We would hope that children know all of their lines (and when to say them) by the Monday back. This will enable them to succeed best possible during the performance itself.
Tips for success

The next key piece of work is learning the songs, which everybody will sing - even back stage.

Have a great half term. We can't wait to see how you have improved!
Homework set 18/01/18 - Myths and legends artwork and blurb
This week’s homework is to write a blurb for your myth or legend accompanied by a high quality illustration
What is a blurb?
A blurb is a piece of text, describing to a reader what to expect from your book - they are normally found on the back of a book
What should it contain?
Enough information for the reader to become interested in the story
Not so much information that they know exactly what happens in the story
A mystery or a reason for the reader to read the story
Assurance that your story is a great read
Powerful vocabulary to interest the reader: ‘spine-chilling discovery’ ‘thrilling adventure’
A final message for the reader - this could be phrased as a question or a command: ‘What is lurking in the wilderness? Do you have the courage to find out?’ ‘Don’t become a victim of the Savage!’
Although not part of a blurb, you could also include a short review
We cannot wait to see what you come up with.
