The Witches' Spell - Teaching Pack of lessons and presentation

The Witches' Spell - Teaching Pack of lessons and presentation

Here are the full set of lesson plans, presentations and printable resources that you'll need for sessions with EYFS, 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. There are also lessons on capacity, counting, sorting, music, and art. 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 hallowe'en activities etc. A follow-up to the drama and music work could be a musical scene based on the spell, which could become a longer more demanding drama and movement performance for an assembly or end of term production, depending on the ability of your pupils. Every lesson has clear aims and success criteria, a comprehensive list of resources, helpful key words and specially designed worksheets and/or presentations, which are all created to be adaptable for your settings and your classes. My aim to make something that is useful and usable for teachers, that is fun for everybody, while creating memorable educational experiences. I have used the extract here with 3 to 11 year olds many times, and it is always a guaranteed winner, becoming a firm favourite warm-up game for drama activities.
