Wednesday 1st July 2020


Yesterday you planned your story based on an outsider. Today you will begin that story. It will involve the stranger appearing and the locals reacting.

What will this part of the story do? It might describe the outsider; show reactions, including dialogue; build up to the crisis etc.

You will save the crisis for tomorrow. Today’s writing is building up to it!

One of the features you may need to include today is dialogue. If you need a reminder on punctuating this accurately, then click here. Remember you should use it for impact: it should give character clues or advance the action.

You have also looked at how determiners and pronouns can help to provide cohesion by avoiding repetition and creating clarity. We don’t want to write ‘the stranger’ several times in every sentence! Think also about how to use adverbials to link between paragraphs. You may find this useful.

Write the opening and build up to your story, introducing the outsider and showing their first interactions with the setting and locals.

When you finish this sections, reread your writing so far, thinking about cohesion and looking for ways to improve it. Look at the dialogue. Does it give clues or advance the action?



We are going to continue to follow the activities provided by White Rose. Remember, you need to watch the video on their website and download the resources from the links below. Today, you need to complete Summer Term Week 10 Lesson 3 (Using scale factors).
