The Witches' Spell - Music, Science/Maths, Art

The Witches' Spell - Music, Science/Maths, Art

Three sets lesson plans, worksheets and full notes on how to deliver fab experiences to get young children thinking! Inspired by The Witches' Spell in Macbeth by William Shakespeare, these sessions are part of a longer unit covering all areas of curriculum, but are great as stand alone sessions too. In this pack are three lesson plans and the printable resources you'll need. The children are given opportunities to make music, sort objects, and create a cauldron of their own. Aims and success criteria are made clear, as are the key words and resources needed for the activities that take place. Differentiation is built into the sessions, and the lessons can be seen as a starting point for your own ideas. Learning Objectives and Assessment for Learning boxes are included on the worksheets to help you with your marking. There is scope for further development into a longer term project, with potion making and further potion and magical activities etc. All of the resources can be easily adapted for your use in the classroom, but if you would like me to do for you, please contact me: emma@emblabee.org I am here to make your life easier after all :) To hear a FREE recording of the poem that inspired the activities, please go to my website: http://emblabee.org/the-31-days-of-scary-day-1/ There are also links to the other resources and lesson plans in The Witches' Spell Teaching Pack.
