Wishing Stories!


All this week you have planned, drafted and edited a wishing story about you finding a real animal or a magical creature and making lots of mess!


FRIDAY: To write a Wishing Story.

Today it is time to neatly write up your incredible story!


Your Wishing Story could be written up in your Distance Learning book, on a piece of paper or typed up on computer. You could add illustrations or maybe a photo to show what your creature is like, how your house looks, or help describe the mess that ensues!


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.


Remember to use your planning notes and your edited draft 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 Wishing 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 work!  🌟
