Meeting ID: 912 2953 6833
Activity 1 (a few minutes)
I asked you to pick a book that you want to look at. This can be:
- Your favourite story
- One you know extremely well
- One you used to like
Activity 2 (a couple of hours – to do it well)
Create a Picture Book Theatre.
Before you begin you will need a box – you can then watch the video above where author and illustrator Lydia Monks shows you how to make a picture book theatre. Don’t forget that you will need to make some characters for your performance. You will also need to draw some scenery – think will the background need to change?
Activity 3 (between 30 – 60 minutes) – Aim for 2 -3 sides – this may seem like a lot but one page will only give you around 30 seconds. If you have the book, you can use it to see exactly what the characters say.
Write a Playscript for your picture book theatre.
Remember when you write a pay, you don’t need to use speech marks.
Here is a demo one to show you how it should be set out.
Setting: The students are in their charm class; they have to use a spell to make feathers levitate. Harry, Ron and Hermione are working as a group.
Harry: We need to figure out how to do this!
Ron: Whenever we try it, it nothing works!
Hermione: Well it’s obviously, because you’re not saying it properly!
Ron: (sarcastically) why don’t you try it, Miss. Granger.
Hermione: (spitefully) No. I’m researching a spell, why don’t you try Mr. Weasley!
Ron: Wingardium Leviosa!
Some ideas are put in brackets, this helps show the person playing the part how it should be said / acted.
Activity 4 (Unknown – 5-10 minutes – maybe more)
Put on the play using your playscript and your picture book theatre. It would be amazing if you could film the performance and then send me the videos.
Activity 5 (10.30am – don’t be late)
Watch the following:
