The 'Build Up'
The image above says it all really (if you click it, your learning will begin)! Yesterday, we looked at how you could develop your adventure/ dilemma story opening, editing and improving your writing from Friday. Each day this week, we are going to take a different part of our 'story mountain' to really 'build up' our story. As much as some of the stories were good, one thing I thought we could really work on was building our 'story mountain' structure. Remember, the intention was for our story to be themed around the Anthony Browne book 'The Tunnel'...
Click the image above to listen to the story again. Can you discuss with a parent/ brother/ sister, where the 'build up' is in this story? What is the 'build up?' (some of the resources below might help you here). Can you show your parents where you have 'built up' your story? There is no fixed formula for writing but, if you devote a paragraph to each section, it should form more of a story than your 'cold write' on Friday...
Yesterday I tried to show you the 'opening section' of my story. Below is the 'build up' to my story- see what you think:
Whilst Chloe could be extremely shy, Katie was a daredevil- she was really adventurous. Often, when the two girls were at school, Katie would dare Chloe to some things she wasn't too keen on going- venturing into the dark wooded area, observing what was behind the caretakers fence, playing dangerous games. This often led to the two girls arguing and, eventhough they were the best of friends, this was a 'stumbling block' in their friendship.
However, nothing came close to the occasion in question! Chloe had invited Katie to her house for tea, something which they did on a weekly basis. Chloe's Mum yelled, "Ten minutes until teatime girls, ten minutes"...
Katie shouted to Chloe,
"I bet you I can climb that tree at the bottom of your garden, the tall one with the uneven branches."
Chloe thought what Katie was trying to do was dangerous, yet followed her to the bottom of the garden nonetheless. As they approached the bottom of the garden, Katie noticed something. There was a massive gap in the fance, which led through to a different area of shrubland.
"Bet you can't catch me" Katie teased and, like the speed of lightning, Katie whizzed through the gap in the fence. Chloe followed however Katie was so fast, just like a leopard, that Chloe had no chance of catching her.
The area of shrubland, just off the neighbours garden, was small in nature. Chloe clambered through the fence and look around the area. Once- twice- three times. No Katie! It must be getting towards dinner time- Mum would be waiting! Where had Katie gone?
This is my 'build up'- now, using the resources below to support you, have a try yourself at completing yours. Remember to use the resources from yesterday too, to particularly get you thinking about developing your wide use of different word classes...
