Fun French Fairy Tale Playsby Dorothy M Hamilton
These 10 specially written Fun French Fairy Tale Plays are adaptations of well-known stories. Each story is given a special twist, adding extra humour. For example, Rapunzel lives at the top of the Eiffel Tower and Snow White loves to play sports, especially golf!
The plays provide an ideal way of motivating children aged 7–13 to learn French. Pupils will enjoy the challenge of learning a French script and subsequently gain confidence through performing it to an audience of adults and/or fellow pupils.
The Fun French Fairy Tale Plays use simple repetitive language and are easily adaptable. Each play has a specific language focus, making it easy to link the plays to topics the pupils are studying.
The book contains reproducible scripts, English translations and suggestions for performing the plays. The CD-Rom included with the book contains audio files of native French speakers performing the plays as well as a pdf version of the book.
See how much fun staging a play can be by watching this YouTube video of a school performing Blanche-Neige.
Here's a review from a Key Stage 2 teacher:
"Some of my Year 5 children performed Cendrillon and it went down a treat with the children and staff alike. The children found it fun to learn and all the information about staging made everything so much easier and manageable for me. The CD and translation were so useful too. My Year 6 thought Cendrillon was so great and fun that they also wanted to do a play from your book so, we chose and performed Blanche Neige – a great success!!"
