Literacy Challenges


Our overall aim of this week is to get to know the features of a play script and to be able to read them.


As always, we are not expecting you to print resources- but we have provided them if you would like to. If you do not have access to a printer, you could read them on your device- or have a go at writing your own with your family. 



Monday: At the start of a new unit, we always complete a cold task. This is an activity where we work completely independently to show what we already know. Today I would like you to write a play script using the following picture as inspiration (just have a go- even if you are not sure what a playscript is). 


Tuesday: Have a look at these examples of play scripts- create a list of everything that you think should be in a play script. (If you struggle this website might help:

Wednesday: Have a go at reading the following play script- you may need to get one of you family members to read a part for you. Remember- the parts in brackets are the stage directions, read these in your head. 

Thursday: What are stage directions for? 


Have a go at adding your own stage directions into the text below. Then carry it on.

Friday: Today we would like you to focus on improvising speech. Watch the video below up until 11.30 (you started watching this last week). 


Working with someone in your family, take on the roles of Mr and Mrs Twit. Can you improvise the next scene called "The funny walking stick"? You cold film it and send it to me. 


If there isn't anyone in your family available to help- you could write down your improvised dialogue.
