The Student’s book includes comperehsion tasks, which focus on the characters,settings and plot and language tasks to consolidate key vocabulary. Classroom activities encourage students to engage with the topic of each play and to reflect on their learning and performance. Project Works offer an oppurtunity for students to use their imagination with lots of ideas for creative tasks. The plays reference cross-curricular themes to reinforce learning in other subject areas.
