Peasants, Princes and Pestilence

This half term, Year 5 have thoroughly enjoyed learning about our topic- in particular the plague.


We have looked in detail at how the plague spread and the symptoms people suffered from. 


In English we have been reading a Macbeth adaptation by Andrew Matthews. Everyone has really enjoyed the battle and dark nature of the story. Many of the class have also enjoyed exploring a range of other Shakespeare adaptation in class and home reading. 


We rewrote the opening of Macbeth from Macbeth's point of view.
