Writing Challenge

Today you are going to write a narrative or story. The idea for your story is ‘Stuck.


It could be a person, object or animal that is stuck in your story.

  • Where are they stuck?
  • How did they get there?
  • What will happen to them?

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 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.
  • Decide how you are going to publish your story: writing it out, typing it, making a book?
