Cover lesson task for KS3 drama pupils. The task is scaffolded so that pupils can complete it independently with little to no input from the teacher making it perfect for lessons covered by non-specialists. Pupils work through simple tasks on the sheet to help them to organise ideas for a play before they write their own script (e.g. ‘A genre or topic that interest me is:’; 'My play will be set in the following place: '; etc). This could be completed over more than one lesson to allow pupils to develop their writing and create longer scripts. They could then work practically to create scenes of scripted drama using their own or each other’s work. Pupil ownership / engagement: Top writing tip from David Walliams’ radio talk with Chris Evans on BBC Radio 2 (paraphrased) Scope for pupils to write about whatever genre, topic, characters, setting etc that interests them **Challenges: ** Use stage directions. Use different vocabulary for each character to show their individual personalities. What does a play look like? Format your work like a professional playwright would! **Resources required: ** Pens / pencils, paper or workbooks, the worksheet provided OR Computers / laptops for pupils to type their work & the worksheet provided (alternatively it could be emailed to pupils to save trees… we all <3 trees!)
