I used Macbeth for Kids with a mixed Y3/4 class of 7 - 9 year olds, as part of two units of work on performance poetry and play scripts. It really appealed to the children, who found it funny and easy to follow, and for me it was just fabulous - it really brought together all our learning and was manageable for me as a script, fitting our (tight!) timescale perfectly. A wonderful mix of original lines from Shakespeare and well thought out synopses to provide an abridged and child friendly version which never loses sight of the original. Easy to perform with minimal props, you can tell the author has the children at the heart of his thinking in writing this - marvellous!
