LI: To plan an adventure story

Look back at Shackleton’s Journey - attached on TEAMs.

Remind yourself of the story map you created.

What are the story’s events?

 

Today you will be planning an adventure story.

You have two options:

1. Write the adventure story of Shackleton’s journey.

2.Use his journey to inspire you to write your own adventure story.

 

Look back at all the learning we have completed of the past two weeks.

What do you think we need to include in our writing to be successful?

 

I recommend you use a story map to help you plan the opening, build-up, problem, resolution and ending but you don’t have to - attached below.

 

Challenge: Plan your adventure story using a story map or your own way.

 

Wow: Add in examples of Year 6 grammatical features which you would like to use in your story.
