LO: To publish your portal story

Today we are bringing together all of the hard work you have done over this week…all of the editing, all of the writing and re-writing, Monday and Tuesday’s paragraphs too!

You are going to be writing your excellently developed, fully evolved story up in full!


Using the guidance inside the document, take your time to ensure you have met all of the S2S, ticking off the sheet and using your neatest joined-up writing to create a beautiful, perfectly finished, publishable story. Of course, this can be typed up on the computer (in a legible font, correctly punctuated) if that's easier.

If you would like to add photo's and illustrations too...that would be... very cool.... 


We are all so excited to see how wonderful these look all finished up, and to check which challenges you’ve fought to achieve! Make sure you’re copying carefully so that it all makes sense and is as neat as possible without missing any words or sections.

Your story should be organised in paragraphs and we should see at least the five planned and written paragraphs finished neatly by the end of the day.


Congratulations you incredible budding authors! We are so proud of what you’ve achieved.
