Story Writing - Portal Stories


FRIDAY: To write a portal story.

Today it is time for you to finish writing your story. You started it at the beginning of the week; you’ve planned it and edited it and now it’s time to sit down relax and take your time to complete it.


Often in school we put on peaceful music in the background; some authors find this really helps. Or take a movement break after each paragraph, or break up the writing by doing other work in between each chunk of writing. When it comes to a big writing mission like this, take your time.


You could write your story on a piece of paper, in your Distance Learning book or type it up on computer. You could illustrate it with pictures of the most exciting parts.


Remember to use your plans to help you and of course make an effort with your presentation. 


I’ve included below the Steps to Success to help you include all your skills!



Once you have written out your story, I would like you to self-assess your writing and tick off the skills you feel you used. I have attached a copy of this below.


I cannot wait to read your finished stories!
