These Teachers’ Notes accompany the PRINT ONLY guided reading leaflet in Literacy Time PLUS Ages 9 to 11, September 2009.
- Allow children to scan the text. Establish that it is a play script and recap conventions of script writing in terms of layout and technical terms.
- If possible, read and/or watch some versions of the Arthurian legends and examples of adaptations of the sword in the stone legend.
