Today in literacy you are going to be writing the next part of the story. This is the middle section and is where you are going to reveal the surprise to your characters. Even though we've been using the ' Surprise Phonecall' text as a guide, you are writing a completely different story with your own plot line and characters- the only similarity is there is a surprise. Think carefully about how you will reveal the surprise- does something happen? Or does someone say something? How will your characters react when the surprise is revealed? Your main learning focus today is all about using those formal and informal language features- this will be especially useful when add speech from your characters. We've done lots of work on this so you should be pros..but there are still some slides for you to recap over the different features.
