Today, our English session is divided into two parts:

  1. Punctuation: Use of Colons (10-15 minutes)
  2. An introduction to Shakespeare's Macbeth (30-45 minutes)


LO: I can use colons to introduce an explanation or a 'reveal'. 

Yesterday, we learnt how we can use colons to introduce lists in our writing. Today, I would like you to watch this short video clip which explores how a COLON can be used to introduce an explanation or a 'reveal'. 

LO: I can answer questions about the opening sequence to the play 'Macbeth'. 


This week, we will focus on the opening to the play 'Macbeth'. The opening sets the scene and introduces some of the main characters.


I would like you to watch the first clip of the BBC adaptation of Macbeth. Then, try to answer the retrieval, inference and vocabulary questions about the opening. 


It is important that you have a good understanding of the opening scene as I would like you to produce a descriptive piece of writing based on the opening later this week. We will start to think about how we can structure this in tomorrow's lesson.
