LO: I can retell the opening to the tale of Macbeth.


Today, I would like you to perfect the initial ideas you wrote in yesterday's lesson. I hope that you were able to listen to Michael Morpurgo's retelling of Macbeth in Thursday's Reading Folder. That may give you some more ideas about how we can write the opening in narrative form.

  • Read the text you wrote yesterday.


  • Could you improve your sentence openers?

'EDINGLY' words make great sentence openers: 

          Confused and disorientated,...

          Glancing from side to side,....



  • Could you include a wider range of punctuation?

​​​​​​​Use a colon to introduce a list, explanation or a 'reveal'.

The same question vexed his troubled mind as he made his way across that desolate moor: Thane of Cawdor? How could this be?


  • If you are unsure about how you could introduce a colon, why not look at the examples in the COLON CHALLENGE that you completed yesterday?


  • Could you include any of our recent WORDS OF THE DAY?


  • Check your text for spelling mistakes.


  • Draw a picture to accompany your finished text!
