At the moment, in year 6 ,we have been doing quest stories in small groups of four .How it works is in our groups we all decided on our hero/heroine ,what we want our hero/heroine to go and find and why our hero has been chosen.
Firstly we choose our hero their name if they are a boy or girl strong and brave or wimpy and skinny. Then we had to think of what our hero/heroine needed to go and find; also why they need to find that thing or person. After we had thought of them our groups needed to think why this person has been chosen to go on this quest. Is it because they are related to the leader of the tribe or king is it because they are small and skinny so they can get in to small gaps easily? After we had thoroughly thought through all of those things we had our first chapter planned.Now you’re probably wondering why we are in small groups- it’s because we’re not just writing a normal quest story at the end of each chapter there are four different options for the reader to choose from. That’s why we are in different groups each person in the group writes a different chapter 2, 3, 4, 5, they just all end up with the same four options at the end of each chapter the options could be colours ,different tunnels, different animals no one can tell.
Even though the first chapter is mostly the same everyone in the group writes their own one just with the same base line. While we are doing this topic in literacy we are doing a lot more writing in normal lesson so we are not doing big writing. Even though we are not doing big writing we are still getting our levels up because each chapter is like one big writing.
Well done Ella- who will post next?
