Each day this week, go through the different parts of the story to Joseph the Dreamer.

Treat each part as a new scene and convert the section into a play script, remembering the features we looked at last week. There is a reminder here if you need it.

We're looking for all of those features, especially a descriptive scene setting and effective stage directions, as well as great dialogue of course. 

If you're struggling to think of what your characters might say, there are clips of each part of the story on YouTube to refresh your memory, or if you prefer, transcribe the clips and put what those characters are saying! 

**You could practise your scenes in your puppet show theatre you created in isolation!** wink
