Pupils re­mem­ber The Bard with mini play

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

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.”
