Hello Year 1,
It’s time to put the finishing touches on your comic. By now you should have illustrations, captions, speech bubbles and a pretty cool looking comic.
For the finishing touches, we would like you to use some onomatopoeias. Do you remember what an onomatopoeia is? We looked at them during poetry week. It’s a word that sounds like it’s meaning e.g. fizz, pop, bang and zip etc.. If you’re still not sure there’s a PowerPoint attached to help refresh your memory.
You need to look at your story and think about whether you could add some cool looking onomatopoeia’s to really make the illustrations stand out! If you want to be extra creative, you could use what you have learned in your ART lesson this week (Benday dots) to decorate them like a real comic book would have.
We are SO EXCITED to see your final versions. Who knows? Maybe one of them will be published into a real life comic book?! After all… you are all fantastic authors and illustrators (We know we would buy a book written by any of you!)
Best of luck, Year One!
Dear Year 1,
You did it! You made your very own comic books! We are all so very proud of how hard you’ve worked on these little pieces of excitement the past couple of weeks.
We hope you’re feeling proud of yourselves too. Some adults can’t even make comics, and find them really tricky so you should be proud of yourselves!
Today, your challenge is to check through your learning and make any final adjustments and edits before publishing. This is called your ‘final draft’ and it’s something all authors have to do before they publish a piece of work. You will need to check:
When you have finished take a picture of your finished comic and send it to Mrs Coffie via the year group page or even better, film a video of yourself reading your comic and we’ll see if we can upload some particularly cool ones on to the website!
