NEVAEH, OMID, RIDWAAN, ANOJAN AND ABDULLAHI DID IT! June 2017

NEVAEH, OMID, RIDWAAN, ANOJAN AND ABDULLAHI DID IT!  June 2017

Before you read this, make sure you read the Blog entry 'You Can Do It!'

It is all about William Shakespeare's plays, and recommends some books (especially written for children) that will help you to understand his fantastic stories.

 

 

 

Well done to Nevaeh, Omid, Ridwaan (4D), Abdullahi (4N) and Anojan (4H) who all learnt about one of Shakespeare's tragedies - King Lear.

They loved the story and wrote about the play in the style of a playscript, each choosing a different scene from the play.

 

              

 

                                                                 

 

 

What happens in King Lear?

In the story, King Lear is an old King and wishes to give his kingdom away to his three daughters - Goneril, Regan and Cordelia. But first, he asks each of them to tell him how much they love him.

 

 

Well, Goneril and Regan, the two eldest, say they love their father more than their husbands - and even more than life itself,  whereas Cordelia is more honest, and tells her father she loves him as a daughter should - no more, no less. As Cordelia is his favourite child, King Lear is furious that she did not say she loved him more, and he banishes her from his kingdom.

 

 

You would think he would be okay without her, wouldn't you? Because Goneril and Regan love him more than the universe...or do they? Were they telling the truth, or did they lie to their father? What happened after he gave his entire kingdom away to Goneril and Regan and banished Cordelia?

 

 

Well, if you want to find out what happened, look at the children's work (click on the attachments) and read one of the books that have been suggested in the last Blog entry, and you will find out!

 

Keep Writing and Reading!
