Year 9 Shakespeare Villains unit

Year 9 Shakespeare Villains unit

This was initially designed for a competence based curriculum and for year 9s. The scheme of work uses a lot of the RSC active approaches to exploring the use of villains in a variety of plays. The final assessment was to create the prequel or sequel to one of the plays with a focus on the villain. This of course can be adapted to focus on an analytical aspect. There are links to youtube and also you will need to use the RSC teacher packs for some resources as this is what I mainly use when preparing and planning. The lessons were for 2 hours and therefore you may need to cut and change where a lesson starts and ends to suit your school.

Life In a Middle Ages Castle Assembly or Class Play

Life In a Middle Ages Castle Assembly - Banquet, Battle and Joust In this Key Stage II class play or assembly, our narrator and student become time travellers to the Middle Ages - in a brief but highly eventful visit to a medieval castle! Three scenes - Banquet, Joust and Battle - in which our time travellers find themselves participating in ways they could never have imagined! Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down; duration around 15 - 20 minutes. Sample Text: Squire: Here you are! (Looking at ‘crowd’) Best not keep this lot waiting! (Loud cheer from the crowd) Narrator: Waiting? What for? Squire: Why, you of course! You must know how much the crowd love jousts? Toby: Jousts? (Squire presents Narrator and Toby with a lance) Narrator: Oh no! No! You see, there’s been a mistake! Toby: (Holding up lance) Yes. I mean, we don’t know one end of this pole from the other! Squire: (Laughing) Oh you and your little jokes! Narrator: No, that was the last scene. Toby: There’s nothing funny about us two being brave knights! I mean, we’re not! Brave, that is! Squire: (Patting heads reassuringly) Oh, I see! It’s just a case of pre-jousting nerves. Now, take a deep breath Narrator: No, you don’t understand! We (Loud cheer goes up from waiting crowd) Squire: Now, come along! We can’t keep this lot waiting! We’ll have a riot on our hands if you don’t start soon! Toby: But we don’t know what to do! Squire: (Taking lance) Here! Hold it like this and just charge at each other on horseback! Nothing to it! Narrator & Toby: (Exclaiming together) What? Another script is available from TES and www.plays-r-ussell.com entitled Castles and Knights but this is more for Key Stage I – even though it is suggested it could be adapted to Key Stage II. There is also a script entitled St. George and the Dragon which is suitable for Key Stage I.

Blood Brothers - Mrs Johnstone and Mrs Lyons!

Blood Brothers - Mrs Johnstone and Mrs Lyons!

This engaging and interesting lesson enables students to make clear and developed interpretations of the characters of Mrs Johnstone and Mrs Lyons in Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers. In particular, students infer and interpret key information about the characters from their introductions into the play, before tracking how their characters develop through close analysis of key quotations. The lesson utilises a range of tasks, that require students to be both independent and collaborative learners. It follows this learning journey: Considering the meaning of the key term ‘stereotype’ and how Mrs Johnstone and Mrs Lyons represent stereotypes of social groups; Engaging with the opening to the text and interpreting how Mrs Johnstone and Mrs Lyons are presented; Tracking how the characters are developed throughout the play, through engagement with key quotations; Answering an essay-style question about the introduction and development of the characters; Self-evaluating their learning in the lesson. Included in this resource pack are: A well-presented, thorough, and informative, whole-lesson PowerPoint presentation; Appropriate extracts from the play; A worksheet with key quotations to enable students to track the development of characters; A template to help scaffold the main task, complete with quotes from the text; A comprehensive teacher guidance form/lesson plan to assist delivery. Resources are provided in both Word (for easy editing)and PDF (to prevent formatting issues between computers).

Castles and Knights Assembly

Castles and Knights Assembly

Castles and Knights Assembly Key Stage I and/or II - Simple language but broad scope of information - script easily adapted to any age group. Although written for Key Stage I children (language kept very simple) this class play or assembly could be used at Key Stage II due to the broad scope of information. Cast of 30 - easily adjustable up or down Duration - around 10 - 15 minutes Content · The first part of the assembly deals with division between nobility and servants – their different life styles and jobs they did. · The second part looks at castle features – how they were built and how they changed over time. · The third part looks at weapons of battle – how they were used to attack and defend a castle. As previously mentioned, this assembly could be used by either of the two key stages – either simplified for younger children or elaborated upon for the older students. It is, I hope, a fairly versatile script which can be adapted for any age group. Also available off www.plays-r-ussell.com is The Battle of Hastings 1066. This assembly is for Key Stage II and goes into a lot more historical background including the events depicted and characters displayed on the Bayeux Tapestry. Sample Text (Enter Minstrel, Jester and Juggler) Minstrel: Who do you think played music at those banquets? Jester: Who do you think kept them laughing? Juggler: And who do you think entertained them? (Enter Soldiers 1 & 2) Soldier 1: And most important of all, who do you think kept them safe? Us soldiers, of course! Soldier 2: Protecting everyone against the enemy! Gong Farmer: Well. Almost most important of all! Narrator: Oh really? You think you’re more important than them? (Gong Farmer nods) Soldier 1: How? Gong Farmer: You really want to know? Soldier 2: Indeed, we do! Gong Farmer: I had to get rid of … Soldier 1: (Holding nose) Oh, now I get it! Soldier 2: You got rid of what came out of the garderobes? Narrator: The what? Soldier 2: Garderobes! Soldier 1: That’s castle toilets to you! Narrator: Ugh! Poor man! What a job! Gong Farmer: Well, someone had to do it! Narrator: Oh dear! I can see life wasn’t quite so glamourous for you folk! (All shake their heads in agreement) (Exit Gong Farmer, Servant, Cook, Hunter, Cleaner, Builder, Carpenter, Blacksmith, Priest, Steward, Minstrel, Jester, Juggler and Soldiers 1 & 2)

St George and the Dragon Assembly for Key Stage I

St George and the Dragon Assembly for Key Stage I

St. George and The Dragon Assembly - Key Stage One Slightly alternative version, this one, with just one knight in shining armour amongst 14 pairs of princesses and dragons! You could say, speed dating with a difference! Whatever way you look at it, the outcome is very different from the usual version of the story. The cast is adaptable to any size class - just adjust the number of princesses and dragons! Duration: around 10 - 15 minutes (Reading time just 5 minutes but this does not allow for music suggestions and ‘parade’). Sample Text: Princess 1: (Interrupting whilst preening herself) I’m the beautiful princess! St. George: (Looking unimpressed) Oh, really? Princess 1: (Stamping her foot angrily) Yes, really! (To St. George) And who are you? St. George: St. George, since you ask! Princess 1: (Shrieking) No! There must be some mistake! Narrator: Sorry? What do you mean? Princess 1: Well, look at him! He’s meant to be handsome! St. George: And you’re meant to be?(pauses) … what was it? Oh yes, beautiful? (St. George and Princess 1 stand glaring at each other) Narrator: Now! Now! This will never do! As hero and heroine, you are meant to be in love! Princess 1: No way! St. George: Not likely! Narrator: (Clutching head and holding up notes) Oh for goodness sake! How am I going to make this work? St. George: Start with the dragon! (Aside to audience, pointing at Princess 1) And I don’t mean her!
