English:

Today you will be writing your own 'Just So' story using your plan from yesterday.

Read the WAGOLL text below, so you can see what a really good example of a just so story looks like. (WAGOLL stands for What A Good One Looks Like). Remember, you can magpie any words or phrases from this text to use in your own story. (DISCLAIMER: this does not mean you can copy the story though!)

Open the fronted adverbials word mat to give you some ideas on how you can start your sentences/paragraphs.

Then, it’s time to write your story. Remember to:

  • Include a great story opening
  • organise your writing into paragraphs
  • make sure your sentences make sense
  • try to include some good vocabulary (remember to use description to help the reader picture what is happening)
  • Include some direct speech (with inverted commas “” commas , and capital letters in the correct places)
  • Vary the start of your sentences (e.g. fronted adverbials, conjunctions)
  • Year 5s: can you try to include an embedded relative clause

I can’t wait to read your finished stories!
