Explore playscripts with this text types resource pack for year 5 and year 6. Pupils will read the model playscript, a scene from Alice in Wonderland at the Mad Hatter’s tea-party, and write their own playscripts, either continuing the scene of the Mad Hatter’s tea-party, another scene from Alice in Wonderland or writing a scene for another story that they are familiar with. They will use the model text to identify grammar and punctuation used, which includes the use of adverbs and the use of layout devices to structure the text. These can then be applied in their own writing.

This resource includes:

  • Model text - Act ii Scene 1: Alice Arrives at the Tea-Party- A scene from a stage version of Alice in Wonderland
  • Playscript success criteria writing sheet - This lists the features of a playscript, with extra information on adverbs and the use of layout devices to structure a playscript.
  • Playscript planning sheet - a worksheet to support pupils to plan and structure their writing
  • Writing paper - A PDF sheet that pupils could use to present their work
