English - This is a PRIORITY lesson

LO: to write a successful script

SC1: I can choose my favourite invention idea

SC2: I can scribe my initial ideas

SC3: I can write a clear script between the characters

Watch my tutorial to find out what we are doing today.




Today you will be creating a script (that will eventually go into speech/ thought bubbles etc.). Which characters will be involved? Think carefully about their tone (will you need to capitalise/ italicise their words?) and make sure there is not TOO MUCH dialogue as in a comic, other features are important too (illustration/ layout). Add, in brackets, anywhere something is a thought rather than speech.

Step 1 - number your panels so you know which panel you are doing the speech/thoughts for:

Step 2 - Write what each character is thinking or saying in each panel using their name, colons and the correct punctuation:
