A four week unit of work accompanying BBC School Radio's 2016 animated Macbeth (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03mmrng). There are various opportunities to meet KS2 National Curriculum requirements, including study of a significant author, reading techniques such as prediction, drawing inferences, clarification and summary, and drama and writing opportunities, including poetry performance, descriptive writing, persuasive writing, letter writing, newspaper reports, poetry and play scripts. Each lesson sequence summarises the National Curriculum objectives at the start of the sequence.
Some of the lesson sequences require several lessons. Others require just one or two. An indication of the likely time required to cover each episode’s lesson sequence is provided in each case
