In response to an English homework based on Macbeth, Year 7 students demonstrated a creative ability that surpassed expectations. Students were asked to produce a piece of work associated with Macbeth linked to one of their personal interests or hobbies. Students clearly gave the task a lot of thought and a variety of items were brought in that reflected a range of different interests.
Some students spent time baking cookies. They came in a range of shapes, sizes and characters: Macbeth's crown (with icing), the three witches, Macbeth and Banquo - all were delicious! Shields, daggers and crowns were also created - many demonstrating great skill in terms of woodwork and design. In terms of creative writing, some beautiful poetry was written, stories that explored characters' motives and a translation of a key scene into modern day English. Some students designed a programme for the play, with careful consideration of colour and form whilst others looked closely at costume design, incorporating elements from the Elizabethan era.
A truly fantastic effort from Year 7 students!
