English Tuesday 7th July
Hi! We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s work. In this episode we meet the ‘Mechanicals’, a group of Athenian tradesmen and hapless amateur actors, who are meeting to rehearse a play they are planning for Duke Theseus’s wedding
day. Principal among them are Mistress Quince (the play’s director) and Nick Bottom the weaver (who desperately wants to play all the parts).
There are six different Mechanicals assigned to play six different roles in the play-within-the-play in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Watch the episode again and note which part is assigned to which character as it is allocated. Choose from a list of descriptive words to describe the characters - eg:
Activity 1: Use the activity sheet - describe the Mechanicals. You can write them as subtitles in your book-there is no need to print off the sheet.
Activity 2: Create a poster advertising the terrible ‘Mechanicals’
acting troupe. Include drawings of the characters,
based on the animated characters from this adaptation.
