Summer 2: English - Monologues Lesson 1, 3/6/20

Summer 2: English Unit - An Introducation to Monologues by Miss Stray AND Lesson 1 on Wednesday 3/6/20

Instructions for Lesson 1 - Monologues on Wednesday 3/6/20

Miss Stray (teacher in Cypress Class at Abbey Campus) has been busy putting together an interesting programme of work on 'Monologues'. According to the dictionary definition, a monologue is:

"A long speech by one actor in a play or film, or as part of a theatrical or broadcast programme."

The special thing about a monologue is that it is literally a 'one-person' conversation - it could be a long speech in your mind, on a phone, out loud, in front of mirror; in fact, anywhere but it involves just ONE person!


Monologues - Introduction by Miss Stray

 Miss Stray's introduction video below explains about this unit of work taking Year 5 and 6 up to Friday 12th June. There is an attachment to go with Miss Stray's video (it's below called 'Monologue resources for children' but don't worry if you can't open it because Miss Stray talks you through it in her video.

Everything you need to know about 'Monologues' is in Miss Stray's video so go ahead and CLICK:

 

 

* Lesson 1: Here is the video called 'The Lockdown Monologues' that Miss Stray talks about in introduction video. She asked a few questions to consider once you have watched the video:


 Which monologue did you enjoy the most and why?
 Were there any monologues that you thought were funny? What did you
find funny about them?
 Were there any monologues that you thought were sad or that moved you?
What was sad or moving about them?
 Was the topic of all of the monologues the same?
 Did you prefer monologues written from children’s perspectives, or ones
that were written from a different perspective, such as Hilary Clinton’s?

The questions are also in the attachment.

 

 

Enjoy! They're great.
