Scripts and plays – Guest Post by Miss Ngyugen

For Reading this term, 3/4 W, we have been learning to identify the features of scripts, and the purpose of those features. In the text that we have been reading as a class, the script writers informs the reader that they are to create sound effects at various points, and 3/4 W certainly delivered.

We have also been looking at scripts in our Reading groups, where students were reading the roles of the characters in the text.

What are the features found in scripts? What have enjoyed about reading scripts so far?

  1. Dear 3/4W
    In plays I enjoyed reading new stories of scripts and one of my favourite story is story called ‘The Land Of Oz’ and I learned that in plays the scene description normally goes at the start of the play.

      I also remember those features and they were very useful. I like to use sound effects as it is more interesting and more fun!

    Some features from a script are dialogues, characters, settings, scenes, and stage directions. So far what I have enjoyed is writing my own script.

    The features of a script are characters, settings, chaarcter descriptions and stage cues. We enjoyed acting out the parts in Hansel and Gretel during teacher groups.
