Today I would like you to write your lockdown memories down. These will be used for a display in class. You can use the clouds attached or just draw your own. Please write in full sentences and check spelling!
Good to see that your stories are underway. Now, you need to write the middle part of your adventure story- the events ... the action.. what happens to your characters? Here would be a good place to use fronted adverbials to sequence your story, this will give it some structure.
Do not write the resolution to your story/ the end as this will be tomorrow.
