Good morning. 

Here is the next chapter of 'How to train your dragon'

Yesterday you looked at a play script, today we would like you to start creating your own. 

Last week we looked at this picture, we would like you to use the picture as inspiration for your play script. Think about who the main characters might be and what they are doing. What might they be saying? How did they get to the cave? What is inside the cave? 


We would like you to include: 

  • at least two different scenes 
  • three different characters 
  • a narrator if needed 
  • spoken words for each of the characters 
  • stage directions 


Below is a template to help you with your play script if needed. (You may like to do your own)

This week we are going to be writing a play script. 

We will be using the picture above. 

We would like you to use your topic time to create your scenery and characters so you can perform your play to an audience. 


Begin to design your background for performing your play.

Think about where the main event takes place. 

If you have a shoe box this would be great for hanging your scenery.

Below is an idea of how you might want it to look.
