Good Morning Year One, and welcome back to a terrific Thursday.
Have you been enjoying writing your own spin of Malaika's costume by Nadia L.Hohn. I wonder how many of you will grow up to be authors...?
LO: To write a story. (ending).
I can sequence a story.
I can use capital letters and finger spaces.
I can use descriptive and interesting language.
I can use appropriate punctuation where necessary.
Malaika, Granny, Jamaica, Canada, dry, hot, sunny
Today you are going to be using your story map to write the end of your story. You will need to focus on the end two boxes, where the problem is solved and everyone is happy. However the challenge now is making sure that your story flows from what you wrote yesterday!
The focus of the end of the story is to resolve the problem that the characters face.
You will need to think about...
How did the characters solve the problem?
How did it make them feel?
What did they do to solve it?
Did they work alone or with someone else helping them?
We're looking forward to see you using all your writing tools so your story is readable and interesting.
When writing, pause and check for....
- capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.
- good letter formation with ascenders, descenders and normal letter size formed correctly
- adjectives to describe objects
- conjunction 'and' and 'but'
- good sentences. Rehearse your sentence by saying them aloud
Remember - you are not retelling the story of Malaika. You are creating your own story! The story should start with Malaika running out of the door and then it's up to you to imagine and write what happens afterwards. Good luck guys!
