The Island/Macbeth project parent showcase was such a lovely experience for the English team (and we hope the parents & pupils too!)
Here are a few shots of the event:
Wow – so many people came to see the year 8 exhibition yesterday and everyone seemed to be blown away by the quality of work. So although there were only 20 winners going to Stratford, in fact there could have been 50 or 100 winners!
Here are some of the comments that pupils and staff left at the exhibitions:
The gingerbread Macbeth and Lady Macbeth were really cool.
Minecraft Glamis castle was very creative.
The witches made from different materials on card were amazing!
Very creative project – well done!
I liked the dead body of King Duncan.
I loved looking at everyone else’s work. It is very well done.
The potions and the Mindcraft must have taken ages to make.
Clever, creative and amazing!
The drawing of the guy with the beard (all black) was great.
An amazing model of Macbeth – well done! Good design – I would’ve never have been able to make that!
Very good exhibition. Lots of effort put into it and you can see that everyone worked hard. (year 9 student)
I love how you’ve actually made Macbeth fun and interesting!
An amazing effort from all the entrants! It was so difficult for Mrs Lane and I to choose the final 20 winners. (Mrs Aspen)
Leanne’s dogs dressed as the 3 witches
Mia Hurst’s art work and Megan McGlashan’s Macbeth Top Trumps Loved this project!

CLICK WHERE IT SAYS ‘DANIEL’S POTION’
Keep your Macbeth things coming in year 8.
If you find out why actors are a bit superstitious about saying the word ‘Macbeth’ or call it ‘The Play That Must Not Be Named’ then leave a reply.
