JOURNEY THROUGH MIDDLE EARTH
Hi Year 5,
This week you will be using your plans and all the skills you have been developing over the last few weeks, to write your own adventure story.
To help you to create the best piece of work possible, please use the blog below to share your ideas, as well as answer some of the following questions/challenges:
– What descriptive techniques are you going to use to describe your characters? Can you give an example?
– How could you use Show Not Tell to describe a setting your story? Write an example below. Can you improve any of the examples that have already been written?
– Use dashes or brackets to add information to a sentence describing one of your characters.
– Why is it important to create a good balance between Action + Description + Dialogue in your story?
Challenge: Can you write an effective beginning to your story? How did Tolkien begin the Hobbit?
During the week Miss Redhead and I will post examples of great writing to keep you inspired – make sure you read them and think how you could use them to improve your own writing.
