LO: To write a short story.

The time has come for you to write your own story.    Re-read the original story from last week and then look back at your work done over the last two weeks.

Have a look at the prompt sheet attached below and then write your own story.  Use the plan you made yesterday to help and if you want, follow the same structure as the original story, but change the characters, settings and problem.


You have until Monday to do this, so there won't be an English lesson posted on Thursday...just a reminder about this and a link to the Podcast.


I have also included here some instructions on how to make a paper book, so once you've written your story, you could turn it into an actual book!
