This week is going to be more challenging to stick with our ‘wishes’ story planning as you are obviously now spending some of your time in school and some of your time at home and you will not have the work we do at school at home when you complete the work at home! If that makes sense!!? So, we will do some stand along work on the different paragraphs but I will not expect you to write out the whole story…. Unless you want to!


So today we are going to work on writing a paragraph which describes the setting, which is, as we know, your own home…luckily this setting is somewhere you know really well in your house – your bedroom! So, first if you are at home, go and sit comfortably in there and take in everything around you! If not let’s see if we can describe our bedrooms to each other.


Activity: Now, let’s have a go at drawing our bedrooms trying to remember where the bed is, do you have a wardrobe or chest of draws? Etc. Open the ‘Bedroom Setting Ideas’ document and work through the questions adding the ideas to your picture like mine! Now that you’ve got some of your ideas, you need to think about how your character feels in the setting. Open up the ‘Setting Description Activity’ document and see the example and then complete the blank one with your own ideas.


Finally, you can now write your setting paragraph using your plan to help.
