Hello Year 6! It’s Miss Stephens here! Things are about to get magical this week!! If a certain character that starts with a H____ and last name starts with a P___ comes to mind you’ll know what we’re up to.
OK... here's another clue... listen below..
This week we are going to be learning about playscripts!! We have read quite a few playscripts during guided reading, however we are actually going to look at them in further detail this week.
So what is a playscript? Don’t worry if you have forgotten. Watch the video below:
As well, there is a quiz on the BBC link if you'd like to challenge yourself!
Now, time to read some playscripts! Below is a playscript of the first 3 scenes of Harry Potter. The checklist is on the same document as the remember to.

Great understanding of the features yesterday! Today the fun begins! You are going to create your own playscript! It can be about anything! You can stick to the Harry Potter theme if you like. Or, it can be about pirates, animals or anything else (school appropriate).
Below, is a short video on BBC Bitesize about how to write a playscript. There is also a quiz underneath if you want to challenge yourself.
Below is my example plan to help you. I made mine up based on some of my knowledge on Harry Potter! Feel free to choose any topic you'd like!
As well, the remember to and the plan template is there if you need it.
