Top Tips and Ideas:

Setting- Describe the scenery before the Tsunami came/ appeared. Remember TOP to Toe description- start at the sky and work your way down.

 

Characters- Who is your character? Is it you or someone else? Describe what they look like. REMEMBER TOP to TOE description.

 

Problem- What is the problem that causes the conflict? Can you hear the waves coming and see the Tsunami? Describe it.

 

Conflict- What happens because of the problem?

 

Solution- How is this story resolved?

 

Cohesion- Make sure all your paragraphs have this.

Be imaginative and creative.

Tuesday

Refer to your plan which you created yesterday.  

 

Today, you will be writing your 'Setting' and 'Character' paragraphs. 

 

Remember, you will need to consistently refer to the success criteria, ticking off features sentence by sentence (don’t leave this task to the end). If there are any features you are unsure of, you can use the internet to help you understand them.

 

Don’t forget to use a range of sentence structures and to up-level your sentences by including a wide range of grammar features such as: expanded noun phrases and adverbial phrases.

Remember to add cohesion to the end of every paragraph!

Thursday

For today’s writing lesson you will be editing and improving you work. If you have different colour pens available, please use a different colour to edit and improve your work! If not, the same colour will be fine!

 

Use the success criteria to find any features you have missed out of your writing and challenge yourself to include them. Remember to identify them in your writing (just like we do in class). Either, different colours to identify the features or number the success criteria and then number your features.

 

If you have included all of the features, find some of the adjectives / verbs you have used in your writing and find appropriate synonyms for them to make them more powerful.

For today's writing lesson, I am challenging you to something a bit different!

I would like you to use your original story and change as little as possible about it to fit with our new pobble photo. One big change is going to be the setting! However, let's see if your character, problem, conflict or solution paragraph can fit with the image with as little change as possible.
