Friday 12th February
Create your own story using the story cards. Which characters will be in your story? Where will it be set? What will the important item be? Draw a picture of your story, write some sentences, or verbally tell it to someone in your family.
You are going to write the ending of your story. How will your story resolve? Will there be a hero? Remember to keep checking your writing and reading it over. When you have finished your story, take a photo, and send it to me so that I can read it. I am really looking forward to reading it!
Thursday 11th February
Every story has a beginning, middle and end. The beginning introduces the main characters. The middle often has a problem and the ending is usually a resolution, how the problem is fixed. Can you sort the story cards into the correct story? Can you make your own silly stories by mixing up the parts of the story?
Today we are writing the middle of our story. Remember to read your writing from yesterday to check it and make sure the next part flows together. Use your plan to help you. What will go wrong in your story? What is the problem?
