Great job on your literacy work yesterday – so many fantastic descriptions of the picture of the unwanted visitor! Have a look at the writing from Lewis, Lucy and Rye, absolutely fabulous!
Today we’re still going to use the same image of the giant, but now we are going to expand this in to the start of a story. First, think about these questions for the characters.
Do you think the trolls are friendly or do they pose a threat?
How will people feel about seeing the trolls?
How will the trolls feel about seeing people?
Where do you think the trolls have travelled from?
Why do you think they have come here?
How would you deal with the trolls if you had to?
After thinking about these questions start to create a storyline for the image. Are they parts of the Earth coming alive to get revenge? Are they interested in the tourists, do they want to make peace? The idea is up to you – now think about the events that follow what happens in the picture. Your story beginning should be quick paced and exciting for the reader, using description and action.Try and end your story starter on a cliffhanger.
Once you have got your story beginning idea – use this template on DADWAVERS to plan a range of exciting sentence starters.

What have you been reading recently? Let me know and we can share recommendations. Have a go at this comprehension about layers of the oceans, year 5s should have a go at the 2 star version and year 6s at the 3 star version, but as long as you challenge yourself have a go!
