This week’s homework is Practice Makes Perfect. It links to our current literacy unit. It’s a chance for the children to practise what they have learnt!

It is due in on Wednesday 13 October 2010.

Write a short script with at least four speaking parts.

A script has:

A title  eg. Cinderella

A cast eg. Cinderella, Stepsisters, Stepmother, Prince, Fairy Godmother

Names on the left, colon, stage directions, dialogue, NO SPEECH MARKS

eg. Cinderella: (Wearily scrubbing the floor whilst wiping away tears) I’m so unhappy.  

Extra stage directions in brackets  eg. (Cinderella slowly bends down to pick up the invitation.)

New line for a new speaker
