Reading Comprehension Week 2
WRITING - Play Scripts
In English, Year 6 have been focusing on drama and play script writing. We read a various selection of chapters that have been adapted into play scripts and even had a go at acting some of these out to test out their effectiveness as a script. We then began to adapt a chapter from Boy In The Tower into a play script using all of the features we learned about.
This week, have a go at turning a chapter from your favourite book into a play script - you could even have a go at writing your own script about a day at home this week including all of your family members as characters! Make sure you really focus in on the characters speech and actions!
Make sure you remember to:
-list all of the characters in the scene (a short description of each would be great!)
-set the scene (describe the setting, atmosphere, mood and feeling in lots of detail)
-stage directions (in brackets)
-speakers name on the left followed by a colon (:)
-character speech (this has to be realistic - don't forget punctuation and DO NOT USE SPEECH MARKS!)
-new line for a new speaker
Don't forget to act out your final script with your family!
Have a look at these great resources to adapt a chapter into a play script.
