  • My year 5s will be writing a play script based on one of the chapters in Floodland by Marcus Sedgwick. These checklists will be ideal for them to stick in their books as a reminder.

  • Going to use this with my class for checking their playscript writing but have had to copy it out for tomorrow's lesson as there is an apostrophe in the wrong place.... 4th row should say speakers' not speaker's.... I know it's a small thing but as it is on the list of things the children are supposed to know, I can't put it in when it's incorrect.
