The Witches' Spell by William Shakespeare

The Witches' Spell by William Shakespeare

Here are two lesson plans and the printable resources that you'll need for sessions brave Key Stage 1 or 2 children and their teachers. These lessons introduce the famous 'Double, double, toil and trouble...' verses from the play, Macbeth, said by the witches as they create a spell and is a great way to bring children to the Bard for the first time. Children get to act out the spell and build their own verses, using key vocabulary, and rhythm and rhyme. Differentiation is built into the sessions, and the lessons can be seen as a starting point for your own ideas. There is scope for further development into a longer term project, with potion making and measurement activities etc. Creating a musical scene based on the spell, for a longer more demanding drama and movement performance for an assembly or end of term production could be a next step, depending on the ability of your pupils. I have used the extract here with 3 to 11 year olds, and it is always a guaranteed winner, becoming a firm favourite warm-up game for drama activities (reciting it, not, you know, heating up a cauldron or anything - Elf and Safety and all that). To hear a FREE recording of the poem, please go to my website: http://emblabee.org/the-31-days-of-scary-day-1/ If you like my resources, I'd be really grateful for a review and some stars. If you don't like them, ask your loved ones to stock up on flies for your breakfast x
