Week beginning 23rd November 2020
This week we are looking at the poem 'The Raven' by Edgar Allen Poe. The raven is a long poem about a man who is grieving for his lost love, Lenore. He is distracted from his reading by a tapping at his bedroom door. He thinks at first that it is a visitor, then he thinks it is the wind, then eventually, he opens the shutters and a raven flies in. This raven can say one word – ‘Nevermore.’
Week beginning 16th November 2020
This week the children will be looking at another act from the playscript of Matilda. They will be using their acting skills to perform, using musical instruments. They will be focusing on the actors behaviours and stage directions. They are really enjoying the playscripts!
