Pupils remember The Bard with mini play
THE 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death was marked by primary school students with one of his most famous plays.
The ‘Mini Macbeth’ was performed by year four students who have been learning about the playwright in school.
They performed in front of their school mates, teachers and parents.
As well as helping them learn about the nation’s greatest bard, it was also an exercise to help them build their confidence and learn new techniques.
Macclesfield MP David Rutley was also given a sneak preview of the performance before addressing parents, teachers and students ahead of the afternoon performance.
He said: “It was a pleasure to be able to support the 400th anniversary celebrations of William Shakespeare, and to see so many children gaining a greater appreciation for his work while developing new skills.
“For some of the children, this may have been their first taste of Shakespeare, so it was great to see everyone putting in so much effort ahead of a really impressive performance.
“I would like to congratulate everyone who got involved.”
