Play script

You could use your English time this week to write a play script and maybe even perform it with your family!

Look at this PowerPoint about writing a play script

Q: What are the key features of a play script? Try to remember as many as you can before looking at these...

Fixed Fairy Tales Compilation

Choose one of these play script routes:

1. Rewrite a traditional fairy tale in play script form.

2. Write a play script where the story starts off the same but has a different ending - e.g. the three little pigs trap the wolf and make him work as their personal chef, preparing delicious meals for them.

3. Extension writing:

a. Invent a whole new fairy tale, in the form of a play script, using well-known characters

b. Invent a new fairy tale where your characters behave 'out of character'. Maybe you could change their personality types around!
