Using your design from yesterday, today you are going to write a short story based on your design.
Think of your short story in three main parts:
Beginning – Character makes flying machine.
He/she tests it but it doesn’t quite work. Maybe it crashes!
Middle – Character finds some inspiration and makes alterations to the flying machine.
End – Flying machine works or doesn’t work!
Write some ideas/notes for each part.
Now write your short story. Remember to include some Year 3 sentence types/skills
that you have learnt, e.g.
− use different conjunctions in your writing (e.g. when, although,
since, before, after, until)
− use adverbs in your writing (e.g. carefully, happily, soon, silently, next)
− use inverted commas (speech marks) to show a character is speaking
− use prepositions (e.g. above, below, beneath, beyond, within, outside)
