Today, our writing challenge will be to write another narrative or story. The idea for your story is ‘Message in a Bottle’.
Your story could be about a person who write a message in a bottle or a person who finds one.
Where was the bottle found?
Where did it come from?
What does the message say?
What happens to the person who reads the message?
Think about the following:
Who are your characters?
Where is your story set?
What is the problem or complication and how will it be solved?
How will your story end?
Remember to plan, write, read 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.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
