The play we are reading is called 'Our Day Out'. It is about a group of students who go on a school trip. In the comments section, I want you to write about a school trip that you have gone on.
We have just started reading the play 'Our Day Out', written by Willy Russell. What are your first impressions of this play? Are you looking forward to reading the rest of it?
This week we are starting to read some excerpts from plays. This is our first time reading drama and we are very excited! We particularly enjoyed Nathan's reading of the Granny in First Confession. He'll be a great actor one day ;-)
Sometimes our real lives can be filled with drama. In the comments section, I want you to write out a storyline for a drama about your life. You can exaggerate and make it funny. Try to make it as real to your life as possible. The more embarrassing the better!
