by | Mar 30, 2022

Today you will all be completing 5 lessons during the day.

These lessons are NOT live, and you do not need to log onto any google meetings.

You do not need to complete this in order, but you are expected to complete them today.

 

Lesson 1: English

Year 8: you are going to be studying Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ next cycle.  You might already know parts of the story. Three important characters are the ‘Three Witches’ who have ‘beards’ and who cast spells using ‘eye of newt, and toe of frog’. But what did people believe about witches in Jacobean society? Click on the link to the Oak Academy lesson and find out. You will need pen and paper and your brain. Watch out for the witches, though!
