    This is a really hard genre to source. We use the play versions of novels such as Frankenstein and A Christmas Carol. We try to use extracts from the original to introduce reading classics.
    Year 7 enjoy A Midsummer's Night Dream - we only analyse a couple of key extracts. Year 8 study Romeo and Juliet or Much Ado in more depth - key scenes rather than extracts.
    I'm looking forward to reading posts from more inventive schools!

    We have a set called 'Plays with Attitude' which goes down really well with Yr 8. Have a look on Amazon for some ideas.

    Terrible tale of Humpty Dumpty always goes down well.
     
  6. yr 7-Frankenstein or The Demon headmaster (both great adaptations)
    Yr 8-I don't think you can beat Our Day Out. it's an oldie, but such a goodie. Kids always seem to love it (as do I!)
    Hope this helps :)
