In 5G we have been using some new ideas to prepare for writing. We watched a clip called ‘Teeth’, which was really funny. Next, we practiced telling the story to our partners so we got used to using our ‘story voice’. Then we ‘boxed up’ the story using pictures and language choices to help us plan each paragraph of writing.
We used our plan to write the story in clear paragraphs, then used a checklist and colour coding to see what fantastic writing features we have used. Our partners also read our writing and gave advice on post it’s so we could make improvements if we agreed.
Finally, we are writing our complete neat version that will go in our writing journeys.
