Swans Term 6 Week 3

English – writing a scene or short chapter of a story.

Monday – So far we have looked at settings and characters.  Now we are going to look at writing a scene.  If you know the storyline well then I am more than happy for you to choose whichever scene you’d like.  If you don’t then you could write/ extend your work on Harry receiving a letter from Hogwarts and his day in Diagon Alley. 

Of course you could use the actions/ events that really happened in JK Rowling’s books but equally, you could make up your own scene/ event.  (Harry Potter is just a guideline). 

Today start to plan your scene – what will happen? Think of the following:

  • Who – who is in your scene, how will you describe them?
  • What – What is going to happen in your scene?
  • When – what time of day is the even happening?
  • Why – why has the event happened?  What is the impact/ result of the event?

Tuesday – Try and think of some exciting vocabulary that you could include, some words or phrases.  Think particularly about opening sentences and interesting ways to describe things.  You may want to storyboard/ draw a comic strip your work to help you. 

Wednesday & Thursday -

– Write the first couple of paragraphs of your scene, see if you can edit as you go.  If not look through at the end.  Maybe read it to someone at home and check that it is descriptive and uses good word choices. 

Friday – Try and finish your piece of writing.  Type it or take a photo and send your work to me. 

I look forward to reading them all.

The History Project - searching for treasure. 

Swans class were lucky enough to be granted a FREE metal detecting session with thanks to The History Project. They were taught how to use the tools safely and then set loose on Hornbeam school field. Each group were lucky enough to find a few items, then it was back to Sholden to clean them up and investigate!
