Year 4 Play script reading challenge

This half term we have been exploring playscripts below is a PDF document which includes lots of different playscripts, choose one of your favourite playscripts and complete the challenge below.

[pdf-embedder url=”” title=”playscripts”]

Create a story map of the new play script, representing each scene.
Use images, key words, display this creatively.

Use your inference skills to identify the characters feelings to re-write the script including more stage directions. 
Write the script, include a range of stage directions.
(Remember stage directions needs to be present tense)

Like we did in class this half term, you have the opportunity to use one of the playscripts as an idea, but change and re-write the script with a twist.
E.g. Cinderella was changed to Cinderman.

Feel free to complete this task in groups, once you have drafted your playscript, feel free to perform this to your teachers and classmates.
