Don’t forget all of those important things we need to remember to use in our writing. We have created a toolkit with success criteria for you to look at below. We have also included some superhero and supervillain pictures for inspiration. 

 

20.4.20

Write a letter to someone that you know, telling them about all of the things that you have been up to. This could be a family member, a relative,  a friend or even one of your teachers! You could send it in the post,  send a picture of your letter or read it out to that person on the phone maybe. 

 

21.4.20

Decorate and write a thank you card to someone. This could be a card to someone in the NHS, a shop assistant, carer, parent, family, teacher, friend etc.

 

22.4.20

For the next 3 days, write your own fictional (made up) story about the superhero that you drew in Tuesdays art lesson (21.4.20).

Today, you will need to write the beginning of your story. The beginning of a story is like an introduction, so we need to include these key parts:

  • An opening sentence e.g. Once upon a time
  • Setting the scene e.g. in a huge and busy city
  • Your character e.g. there was a superhero called the Henderson Hero.
  • Description – what is your hero like? What does he look like? What were they doing? Where do they live?

 

23.4.20

Today, you will need to write the middle part of your story. The middle of a story is where something happens and where the story gets interesting. We call this the problem. We need to include these key parts:

  • What your superhero is doing?
  • Sentence starters – Suddenly, surprisingly, all of a sudden
  • What happens to them (problem) e.g. a super villain called The Jester appeared and began to destroy the city!
  • Lots of description - this includes descriptions of the villain, the superhero, the city and what is happening.
  • Feelings – talk about how your hero feels or how the people around him feel.

 

24.4.20

Today, you will need to write the end of your story. The end of a story is where something happens to make things better. We call this the resolution as this is where your superhero will save the day. We need to include these key parts:

  • What does your superhero do to save the day? What powers do they use? How do they beat the super villain?
  • Description of what happens
  • What happens in the end? E.g. everyone lives happily ever after, the villain says sorry and changes his ways etc

 

Toolkit:

  • Capital letters for names and at the start of a sentence.
  • A full stop at the end of a sentence.
  • Finger spaces between each word.
  • Ascenders (tall letters e.g. t l h) and descenders (long letters e.g. g y p)
  • Challenging yourself with cursive writing.
  • Adjectives to make your writing interesting.
