Writing Play Scripts – Autumn 2021

In Year 4, we have enjoyed writing play scripts and then performing them! We found out that the structure is quite tricky but we felt happy with it in the end. We also found out that if you write clear and detailed stage directions, the performers will understand where to go and which props to take with them on stage. It is also interesting that this kind of speech doesn’t need speech marks. We used so many adverbs so we could describe how the dialogue should be spoken. E.g. proudly, quietly, loudly etc.  Basically, the better the script, the better the performance really!
