Good morning to the half way day! Nearly there and you are doing great! We are so proud of you all!
This is the final speech Puck says at the end of the play. Remember when we see a play at a theatre, we are the audience. He is talking to the audience.
If we shadows have offended,
All is mended,
But a dream,
I am an honest Puck,
With bad luck,
Puck a liar you call,
So tonight to you all,
Clap if we will be friends,
And let’s make amends.
Offended – upset or hurt by something someone has done or said.
Honest – truthful
Amend – make things better
Think carefully when answering the questions and try and use what you know please – have a go at all of them:
1. Who is Puck describing when he says ‘we shadows?’
2. Is the story real or not? (see what Puck says in line 3) – How do you know?
3. Puck says he is truthful. Has he always told the truth? How do you know?
4. Why did Puck have bad luck?
5. What is he asking for in his speech?
Here are some story stones Mrs Denny has made showing the end of the play/ story of Midsummer Night’s Dream in pictures. You can use her stones or make your own to help you retell the ending of the story. Use each stone to help you say the story out loud and then write the ending using the story stones to help you. You can email pictures of your story stones to see how they helped you write the end to the story. If you don’t have story stones you could draw the shape of the stones or use something different – be creative! We look forward to seeing the ending of the story.
This week’s value is enthusiasm and you have all shown great enthusiasm and passion both in school and while working from home, especially on our work of Midsummer Night’s Dream. Enthusiasm means where you have a strong interest or you are excited about something.
Here is a video of ‘The Curious Garden’ – at first Liam is not very enthusiastic about the garden he finds but he soon finds a passion and interest in gardening. Watch the video carefully and see how he shows enthusiasm for his new garden.
We can grow and blossom with enthusiasm. just like the flowers in the story. Think how you show enthusiasm and use ideas from the video. Think of something that really interests you and how you show enthusiasm. Use the flower below or create your own. On each petal write how you show enthusiasm for something. There is no right or wrong answer – it is personal to you. Look forward to seeing how you have grown with enthusiasm. Remember we will be giving certificates to a child from each class who have shown enthusiasm
