How are we all today?
How amazing was the weather yesterday? I hope you all managed to enjoy it.
At school, we had a lovely afternoon on the field. We even saw Ollie and his gorgeous Charlie and new puppy Malibu!
Let's have a look at what you've been up to.
Okay, let's get learning!
Using your design from yesterday, today you are going to write a short story based on your design.
Think of your short story in three main parts.
Beginning – Character makes flying machine. He/she tests it but it doesn’t quite work. Maybe it crashes!
Middle – Character finds some inspiration and makes alterations to the flying machine.
End – Flying machine works or doesn’t work! Write some ideas/notes for each part.
Now write your short story. Remember to include some Year 3 sentence types/skills that you have learnt,
− use different conjunctions in your writing (e.g. when, although, since, before, after, until)
− use adverbs in your writing (e.g. carefully, happily, soon, silently, next)
− use inverted commas (speech marks) to show a character is speaking
− use prepositions (e.g. above, below, beneath, beyond, within, outside)
Decide if you are writing in first person (I) or third person (he/she).
Make sure you keep it the same throughout the story.
Keep re-reading your story as you write to check it makes sense and you are happy with
it. Check for spelling and punctuation too!
Reading Eggs! Reading Eggs! Reading Eggs! Reading Eggs! Reading Eggs! Reading Eggs! Reading Eggs!
