You have 1 min in your group to decide how you are going to say each line or add emphasis as a group.
REMEMBER IT IS ALL ABOUT CREATING ATMOSPHERE!
Tips: In order to create a scary mood and atmosphere, varying (changing) the pitch, volume and tone allows the character to appear unpredictable.
In pairs, create one of the sounds below that Blodin may make- use those vocal skills!
Stomping of feet
How did the groups use volume, pitch and tone in varying ways?
What mood and atmosphere did the sounds create when you heard them one after another?
How did we use our ‘co-operating skills’ to make this effective? When was it the most effective?
In groups of
lines from the list below to complete.
Aim to describe what Blodin looks like:
His head is as…as a…
His body is as…as a …
His arms are as…as a…
His legs are as…as a…
His tail is as…as a
His claws are as…as a…
His roar is as…as a…
Use alliteration- repetition of the beginning letter of a word
EG: His head is as huge as a humongous hippo
Blodin the Beast
To explore the story of Blodin The Beast
Chorus/ Choral speaking
Discuss the definitions of the following words in pairs
Consider how you would respond to the dragons if this was your town.
Would you run away in fear or stay and fight?
Blodin the beast stalked the land.
He drank only oil, he breathed only fire.
When he roared, the earth shook and the people trembled.
Town after town he razed to ruins, village after village.
No sword, no spear could pierce his thick, horny hide.
No one could stand against him.
Some tried, but were scorched at once to ashes.
There was no hiding place.
There was nowhere to run, except to the mountains,
and everyone knew the mountains went on forever.
Up there you would die of hunger or cold or both.
Better to become Blodin’s slave.
Better to dig his oil for him than to die.
