Inspired by Matilda The Musical, these resources give schools insight into the process of staging this award-winning musical.

With teacher packs, films and online activities, this programme of work aims to give young people the inspiration, confidence, and skills to develop their writing.

How a story is told on stage is very different from a story in a book. In this resource, Dennis and Tim share their ideas on how to create good plots for musicals and where they get their ideas from.

The teacher resource pack gives activities for starting to create plot structure around characters. Students can see plots in action by playing on the ‘plot-o-meter’ and deciding for themselves the best ingredients for a good scene.

Use this versatile resource as an introduction for students in Upper Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3. Activities are also suitable for more advanced study with GSCE and A-Level students.
