The Writing on the Wall

‘The Writing on the Wall’ has been written to tie in with the new English Curriculum on writing, composition, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation.

There are three versions of the play, each lasting 55-65 minutes.

For KS1 we use The Gruffulo to look at writing and sequencing sentences to form a narrative, focus on planning a composition, punctuating sentences and expanding written vocabulary.

For Lower KS2 we look at Harry Potter and how the book creates settings, character and plot, explores organising paragraphs, punctuating direct speech.

For Upper KS2 we develop that to look at the use of conjunctions, pronouns and adverbs.
