Good Morning Rabbits
I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
I have been speaking to some of your parents and have had some lovely feedback on the work that you have been doing. This week, I have put a new website choice for your English and I would love to hear from you about how you found the work.

Handwriting: Please can you copy out this short piece of text written by William Shakespeare, it is from the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire,
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon’s sphere;
And I serve the fairy queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green.
The cowslips tall her pensioners be:
In their gold coats spots you see;
Project: This Sunday is Midsummer’s Day. I wanted to look at the characters from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream as the first part of our project this week. The play has Dukes, Queens and Kings, Fairies and Workmen and a couple of princes and princesses. The story (plot) is very complicated but by the end of the week, you will have a better understanding of it.
So for today, I want you to become costume designers and to draw some characters from the play. I have given you a list in this link – the list has the name of each character and some information about them. Use your imagination – how do you think the characters would look – what would they wear?
If you are really stuck – here are some images that have been used in stage versions of the play.
Mrs Aspinall has sent me this link to a really good site that gives you the story of the play. Thank you for that!
Have a lovely day
