This week 3B have been busily planning their personal narratives in their Writer’s Notebooks. We have learnt about the elements of a good story. They include: Characters, setting, plot, problem and resolution. Our stories need to have a beginning, middle and end, so we have been working on developing:
Let’s have a closer look at Bold Beginnings…
Good writer’s start with:
-A sound (onomatopoeia)
3B looked at a Boring beginning and added some sparkle to it to hook the reader and create interest.
BORING: My name is Kate. Let me tell you about my first day at school.
EXCITING: ‘BING! BING! BING!’ What was that dreadful noise?
