Writing our own story:
In English today we are going to be writing an independent story. Focus on 1-2 pages of high quality writing. Who lives in the hut? What do they do? What happens? You need to make a plan and decide this first of all.
Use the story start below to begin your writing, and then you can finish the story.
- Genre - will it be adventure? Scary? Mystery? Sci-Fi? Historical? Choose your theme and stick with it.
- Characters - choose 2 or 3 (not too many!) Good and bad. Helpers and heroes, etc.
- Context - it is based in South America, so make sure you choose plants, animals and settings that are linked: rainforests, parrots, bats, Amazon river, etc.
-Spelling - check it
- Good range of descriptive vocabulary - describe the settings, the characters and try and use exciting vocabulary. E.g. Mysteriously, the bat swirled higher and higher into the sky and then suddenly disappeared like a shadow.
