Overview:

Day 1: SPAG lesson – Please complete the selection of questions. There are three different tasks – progressively getting more challenging. Please choose one task to complete.

 

Day 2:  Today we're looking playscripts. What are the main features of a playscript?  Think about Chapters 6 and 7 when they are about to get on the London eye, and your main task is to convert this narrative into a play script. Think about how the characters must be feeling and what they are doing. See task sheet for more details  This may take more than 1 session.
