English Week 3 – Storm Castle Story Writing
This week we will be looking at story writing. Log onto your Education City account where we have set some activities that will help you write and amazing story.
When you have had a go at those read or listen to the story Storm Castle found on Oxford Owl: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/home/reading-site/find-a-book/library-page?type=book&view=&query=castles
or on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ze_Px7G1tu4
Now you are ready to plan the story. First we must split the story into 3 parts. We have attached a sheet (below) which will help you to do this. You have used one just like it in school.
Once your story is planned you might decide to write one part each day over the week, then re-read and edit it when you have finished (as it is described below)
Day 1 – activities on education city, read/listen to story and plan
Day 2 – beginning of the story
Day 3 – middle of the story
Day 4 – end of the story
Day 5 – Edit you story (can you make it better by adding interesting words, adjectives/adverbs, does it make sense?)
You can complete this using electronic devices (computers or tablets) in Purple Mash/word/notes or write it on paper. Please send any stories you complete to the school email (email@example.com) because we miss seeing all your lovely work.
