LITERACY

In this shorter week, the children will be continuing to learn about playscripts and how to change a narrative in to a playscript. They will use their knowledge of the features of a playscript and why certain features are used, to write their own stories in to a play. They will consider the examples of familiar fairy tales they have looked at and use adverbs to create a detailed description of actions needed in each scene. Once the children have changed their stories in to a playscript, they will perform it using tone and expression when acting. This will be aided by the setting descriptions, scenes and performing guidelines they have been learning about.
