English Homework:

©1998 Gareth Pitchford

At school we've been looking at plays and playscripts. I'd like you to write a short script as part of your homework this week.

You don't need to come up with an idea of your own. I'd like you to take a section of a storybook that you have at home (it could even be your school reading book) and turn that part of the book into a playscript.

You'll need to remember how to set out a script. Make sure that you show which line of speech is said by which character. Try and add a few stage directions to your script as well.
