The Enchantress of the Sands drama

Breaking the 4th Wall Drama

We have been reading folktales in Literacy and Language.  We investigated stories from around the world and read A Crocodile Called Raincloud from Burma and Baba Yaga from Russia.


As part of our learning we read The Enchantress of the Sands, a folktale from Botswana adapted by Jamila Gavin.  We read the story and then talked about the characters pretending to be something that they are not.  We investigated 'Breaking the 4th Wall' where a character speaks directly to the reader or the audience. 


In our drama, we each took on the role of the Enchantress or the Herdsman and performed their lines from their story as well as sharing with the audience what the characters were thinking.
