Read anything you want – a book, a comic, a magazine, a blog, a web page, anything!
60 Second reads. Read ‘UFO Sighting’ and answer the questions attached to it.
Today’s task: 1st draft of section 1. Try and include:
*Introducing the girl, Alma. What is she doing? What does she look like? She’s young, playful, naïve, adventurous - how can you get these personality traits across to the reader? *Describing the setting. Try and describe the setting within your description of the girl (for example: the girl skipped along the cobble-stoned alleyway, blissfully unaware of the shop fronts that loomed over her as she jumped from one snow- covered puddle to the next, her broad smile reaching from one ear to the other.
*Introduce the chalk wall. How did Alma write her name? She stepped back and admired her penmanship. *Introducing the shop front. It’s quite a menacing looking shop. How did Alma move towards it? What does she do when she gets there?
-Adverbs and adjectives. Include these to make your writing more exciting.
-Simile or a metaphor. E.g. ‘a blanket of white’ instead of snow.
-Try and use a 3 ed sentence (only if it feels natural to do so though!).
