Week beginning Monday 11th May
Each week , I will be setting a different writing activity. You can choose either to complete this or carry on writing using the Pobble365 website.
This activity is based on Charlie and The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. If you have the book, read chapter 15 where there is a description of the Chocolate Room. Now you need to make up a new room for the chocolate factory. Think of your ideas and draw a picture of what the room would look like. Label your picture.
You need to think about what type of sweet or chocolate the room is making.
When you have drawn the picture and thought of a name for your product, write a description of your room.
Use lots of description and you could include similes.
For example: A tall, marble fountain stood like a giant spurting out thick, brown, creamy chocolate.
Use this website to practise your writing:
There are 365 pictures( 1 per day) which give you ideas on how to start writing a story.
Choose a picture and scroll down below it to read the ideas that they give you.
Write your story, take a photograph and email us your work. We are looking forward to reading them.
Remember to use:
1. A plan- write down your ideas first. What happens at the beginning, in the middle and at the end. Think about the problem. Who are your characters? Where is your story set?
2. Description, action and dialogue.
3. The correct punctuation- full stops, capital letters, commas, question marks, exclamation marks, and ellipses.
4. Check your sentences make sense.
