Friday's Writing Challenge


Your writing challenge today is to plan, write and edit another short story. The idea for your story is ‘Up, Up and Away’.


  • You could write about an animal that flies or a person that has an adventure in an aeroplane or hot air balloon.
  • You might want to write about something that floats or flies away.

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 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.
