Wednesday's Writing Challenge


Your writing challenge today is to plan and write another short story. The idea for your story is ‘A Day in the Life of a Pet’.


Imagine you are someone’s pet. You can be anywhere and belong to anyone.

Here are some examples:


  • A snake who feels he is misunderstood and just wants to be cuddled.
  • A hamster who thinks he is a superhero and must rescue the cat from the dog.
  • A bird who is afraid of flying.
  • A tarantula who is madly in love with his owner.
  • A stick insect who thinks she is a supermodel.
  • A rabbit who hates having big ears.

Remember to planwriteread and edit:


  • Plan your story with a beginning, middle and end. How are you going to hook the reader at the start? You could write down notes, draw a picture or create a storyboard.

  • Organise your ideas into paragraphs.

  • Choose your words carefully to entertain the reader.

  • Write in sentences. Think about some of the things we have used in class like inverted commas or fronted adverbials.

  • Pay attention to your spelling and punctuation.

  • Read, check and edit your work carefully.
