Year Five and Six watch Macbeth
On Thursday, Year 5 and Year 6 had the pleasure of being invited to John Masefield High School to watch a performance of Macbeth by the Young Shakespeare Company from London. What the children and staff witnessed was nothing short of outstanding. Coupled with brilliant acting skills, each and every actor took the time to discuss their roles and, Shakespeare’s work itself, with the children.
The children were immersed in the storyline from the off and the actors engaged and involved the children at every opportunity. Andy from Year 6 played a particularly big role in the story and was very convincing in his acting! We were especially proud of how all of the children conducted themselves around John Masefield High School - they were polite at every opportunity. The children contributed to the occasion with well though-out answers and discussions during the performance. They are a truly a credit to our school and community! A huge thanks to Ledbury Poetry Festival for inviting us.
