Writing Task

Your task this week is to write two diary entries. You need to imagine that you are moving to France – how would you feel the night before leaving? You then need to imagine that you have arrived in France – how do you feel now you are there?
When planning in school, we will be thinking about our thoughts and feelings for both events and will use these notes to help us form our diary entries.
Please remind yourselves of the writing criteria again and try to use what you can in your writing.

‘The Island of Gunder’ Writing Task

Rishita’s Writing
A Visit To Togo’s Lair

“Come on Tom. I know the way to visit Old Togo.” shouted Jasmine from ahead. Tom trudged aimlessly up the hill. There was no way that they would reach Togo in time to save his younger brother Timothy from the sting of the poisonous stinging nettles they had endured during the journey through the Haunted Forest.
“There it is!” exclaimed Emily pointing towards a small cottage like house. Togo slowly shuffled out of his abode to greet them but with one look at Timothy he hurried back in. After a couple of minutes, he came back out with a small, lilac bottle. With his wrinkled fingers, Togo rubbed some of the ointment on Timothy’s arms and legs {which had been scratched}.Within seconds, Timothy’s eyes flickered open and he smiled up at his brother’s anxious face.
“It is not safe here for you four. Go home I tell you. Go home!” croaked Togo waving his hand at them.
“We’re just looking for the lost treasure of Gunder.” replied Jasmine positively.
“No treasure, no nothing just go home. The treasure has a curse inflicted upon him.”
“But-”
“No buts, GO!” wheezed Togo before going back inside and slamming the door shut. Sighing, Jasmine, Timothy and Emily turned to go however, Tom stayed where he was.
“Come on Tom, you heard the man let’s go,” said Timothy, turning around to face his brother.
“No. I think I have an idea.” replied Tom smiling at his brother, sister and sister’s friend.

Writing Task

The writing task this week is another narrative. This time you are writing a chapter about ‘The Island of Gunder’ using one of the chapter titles given to you. Click on the image above to enlarge it and find out more about your task!
At school we will be spending time over the week producing this piece of writing. We will firstly have a lesson where we discuss our ideas and plan our writing. When planning our writing we will be thinking about the following points:
– Chosen title
– Setting (Where does it happen?)
– Characters
– How does the chapter begin?
– What happens next?
– How does the chapter end?
We will then complete the writing, edit it very carefully and finally, publish it once it has been edited and checked against the year 6 criteria. The criteria shows what you should be using in your writing and we have used it in class before. You can find this below and use it to know what I expect to see in your writing.
