2 x 15 minutes

Read anything you want – a book, a comic, a magazine, a blog, a web page, anything!



Today’s task: 1st draft of section 3.

Try to include:  

-Alma entering the shop. -Describing the shop interior. -Alma’s surprise as the doll has disappeared and re-appeared in another location. -Alma’s naivety (she does not believe anything is wrong/spooky). 

- The doll on the bike trying to escape. 

- Some of the doll’s thoughts (“That’s it little girl. Enter my domain and you will be trapped here forever!”). 

-Here you are starting to build up the atmosphere and are trying to make your audience feel Alma’s excitement about getting the doll whilst also hinting that something is not right! 


Today’s targets: 

Use a range of tenses in your writing. We should be writing in present tense (if it’s too tricky, use past tense).  

SIMPLE Tenses: 
-Past tense (simple): Usually ends in –ed. The man walked to the shop. 
-Present tense (simple): the weird one. Feels strange to use it. We tend to use it when answering questions or giving information. She walks to the shop. I eat my dinner at 5 O’clock. 
-Future tense (simple): Remember, WILL is from the future! She will read the book later. 

-Progressive/continuous tenses are progressing (have an –ing verb). 
-The girl was swinging on her chair. 
-The teachers were pulling their hair out. [Don’t forget the difference between was (singular) and were (plural)] 
-The man is staying exactly where he is. 
-Perfect tenses are p-hhhh-erfect (try not to breath over anyone as you practise that!). They contain the ‘helper verbs’ have, has or had. 
-The boy had eaten all of his pudding before his vegetables. 
-The dog has eaten all of our sausages! 
-Perfect progressive/perfect continuous are BOTH p-hhh-erfect (they have the helper verbs, have/has/had) AND they are progressING (-ing verbs). Don’t forget to look out for Mr Been too! 
-The dog had been sitting at the window all day. 
-She has been looking for her husband for 2 hours.
