LO: To write speech effectively
Next week you will be writing your own story. Start thinking of two characters who will be in your story. You might want to create a character who was always wishing that he or she didn’t have to go to school and is now regretting their wish! The other character warns them against this.
In stories, one character often speaks and another replies. This helps move the story along and should tell the reader something about the characters. We need to make sure we lay out the speech clearly and punctuate the way that they speak so that the reader knows:
• what’s said
• who said it
• how they said it.
There are some golden rules for writing speech which you might remember from last term:
1) Put inverted commas (“ ”) around what is actually said.
2) Begin a new line (paragraph) for every new speaker.
3) Always begin a new piece of speech with a capital letter.
4) Always put some punctuation at the end of the speech – . , ! or ?
5) To make it interesting, tell us how the words were spoken.
Read the document below and then use it to create your own short cartoon conversation. Then, rewrite the conversation using words and punctuation to paint the picture of the scene for the reader.

LO: To reflect across a mirror line
A lovely one today - I love reflection lessons. You don't need a mirror, so don't worry about that. The best way to work out where the reflections need to be drawn, is by counting the number of squares from the mirror line!
