Thursday's Writing Challenge


Your writing challenge today is to plan and write another short story. The idea for your story is ‘The Bridge’.

Things to think about:


  • Where is the bridge?
  • How big is it?
  • What is the bridge made from?
  • How old is it?
  • What is on the other side of the bridge?
  • Do you meet anyone else crossing the bridge?
  • Will you be able to get back again?

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.
