It was so nice to see you all yesterday- it made me realise how much I have missed you all. Thank you for bringing in your reading books. Cromebooks will be brought back in on Thursday for you to sign the crome book paper work.
Lets get on with the learning today!
Did you enjoy the first chapter of the The Ickabog? Lets read Chapter 2.
Turn the chapter into a play script.
What is a play script?A play or drama script is like a story that has been written for actors to perform, with the term 'play' relating to a theatrical performance.
People who write them are called Playwrights. Children will learn about them during drama lessons.
Play scripts can be written in all genres, from comedy to drama, thriller and romance.
They are written differently to stories and novels in that they focus more specifically on dialogue and stage direction so that actors know how to make the characters behave on stage.
The words spoken by characters in drama scripts are known as dialogue.
Whereas these are written inside speech-marks in books, in scripts they are written after the character name and separated by a colon.
This makes it easier for actors to follow the lines they need to say when performing the script.
Stage DirectionsStage directions tell actors what to do or how to act while reading a particular piece of dialogue.
These can be instructions on how to walk, speak or stand, or just suggestions on mood.
These are included in the dialogue using brackets.
They can relate to any character and not just the one who is speaking.
Stage directions are not said aloud.
They are always written in the present tense.
Enjoy your day!
