Dipping into Macbeth - The Witches (Part 1)

In this lesson we will meet a witch! We will look at lines in Act 1 Scene 1 of Macbeth. We will then explore how we might voice the witch's words in different ways and we will consider which way is the most effective. We will try moving and using gestures in different ways as we bring the character to life and start to ask questions about who (or what) she might be. This lesson includes some physical activity, please make sure your child is adequately supervised.
