We will be writing and illustrating our own narratives this week focusing on our lockdown stories.
The story that we will be focusing on to help us with our narratives is ‘The world made a rainbow’ by Michelle Robinson. Here is the link to the story. I have also attached a PDF version of the story below.
In each lesson we will have our success criteria to follow. The success criteria are what I need to see in your work to see what you are learning whilst at home.
- Exclamation marks
We are going to be continuing to write our narratives. Today we are going to be moving on to our third paragraph. We will continue to tell our readers about another activity that we have be doing during lockdown.
In the story ‘The world made a rainbow’ we learn about the activities that the little girl did during lockdown. Can you remember what she did? She went on a walk to see her friend Violet’s rainbow in her window.
Task: Write the third paragraph of your story.
Using the lockdown memory jar activity that you completed at the beginning of the week I would like you to choose a different activity that you have done during lockdown to write about in your next paragraph.
I chose my idea – painting beautiful pictures to write about in my third paragraph.
Here is my example:
Another of my favourite things to do is painting. I have been painting lots whilst I have been at home. I have started my own gallery. When I am older I would like to be a famous artist. I have put all my incredible paintings up on the wall for all my family to admire. I feel very proud about my gallery!
