Don’t say said!

In Literacy, Year 4 have been writing their own imaginary world stories. We have been reading Harry Potter to give us some ideas. This week we have looked at dialogue and how we make that interesting in our writing. We agreed that using ‘said’ too much can make our writing boring, so we banned it!

Today we did some drama around this. We acted out a scene from Harry Potter, making sure we spoke the lines the way JK Rowling told us to i.e. shouted/yelled/whispered. It was great fun and has exposed some of us as very talented actors!
