Our Day Out Scripted
Scripted – This scheme of work and 6 lesson plans explores, Our Day Out by Willy Russell. Students will investigate the background of the play to put it into social, geographical and historical context; they will then explore the play as a group. Once these areas have been explored students will then rehearse and perform a short duologue from the play.
The scheme encourages students to explore their imagination, concentrate on creating and presenting a character, as well as exploring the use of script, scenario and contextual information.
Each lesson in this 6 lesson plan also includes a full break down of practical exercises and activities as well as 2 PowerPoints and links to online video resources, to aid students learning.
