This week we have been learning about recounts and we have been looking at the video of “The Black Hole”.
Watch the video again.
You are going to write a diary entry (which is an informal recount) of this event.
You will CHOOSE whether to write from the perspective of the man OR his boss discovering him in the morning and hearing the story.
- Introduction – what is the diary entry about?
- Chronological order – talk through the event as it happened.
- Clear paragraphs with a topic sentence
- Past tense and FIRST person.
- Powerful verbs and adjectives.
- Facts about the story.
Your work must be at least 3 paragraphs long and should take you AT LEAST 40 minutes. You MUST go back and proof-read your work, checking punctuation, grammar and spelling.
