Our Talk for Writing Booklet for the next few weeks

Week 6 - 22.02.21 to 226.02.21

Week 5 - Friday 5th February


Today's task again looks at things from the perspective of different characters. Your challenge is to choose one of the characters, and describe the setting of the beginning of the film from their perspective. Again, think about using your senses to describe the scene, but also think about the emotions of the character, and how they feel about their surroundings.


There's also a fun bonus challenge!

Week 5 - Monday 1st February


Today you have two tasks!


Task one is to share the writing you completed last week! Enjoy it and be proud of it. Here are some ideas you may wish to try:

  • Phone a friend or a relative and read them your story.
  • Perform your story by recording yourself reading it aloud. You could even upload it to Seesaw.
  • Type or write up your story - on fancy paper? Using your favourite pen? In a mini book, with illustrations?


Your second task is to have a go at the SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) Mat below. As usual, have a look through and choose your challenge level. Try to choose the mat which isn't too easy, but isn't too difficult. Remember, you need to challenge yourself, and your brain - but if it's so difficult that you can't do it, you won't learn as much.

This may help you with one of the questions

Week 4 - Friday 29.01.21


Check the document to tick the things you have included in your story.

If you have missed anything, you can edit it or re-write the paragraph.

Week 4 - Wednesday 27th January


It's time to start planning!


Today, your task is to start fleshing out the bare bones of your story into an actual plan. Remember to:

  • Add in lots of details you'll need to remember later.
  • Write in note form, not in sentences
  • Use shorthand (G for Grandmama, for example) to speed up your note taking - but don't forget what your short hand stands for!
  • Think about your senses - what can your character see? What can they smell? Feel? Hear?


You could also:

  • Act out your story - this will help you to memorise the parts
  • Ask someone to question you on your story:
    • Ask why things happen
    • Ask questions about the characters - what do they look like, what is their personality
    • Ask about your settings, using senses - what can you see in the distance/up close? What's the biggest/smallest thing you can see? What can you hear? Is it loud? Quiet?

Week 4 - Tuesday 26th January


Today it's time to start thinking about writing our own story!

Week 3 - Friday 22nd January

Today's task is to create a menu for a goblin birthday party. Try to set your menu up like a real menu, with different courses and possibly different options to choose between.


Can you make your menu choices sound more interesting by adding rhyming foods, or alliteration? Similes and metaphors could also entice your guests to eat your food.


All of the foods in the example relate well to the Tree Goblins - if you've created a new type of goblin, how could you make your food sound like something they would eat?


As an optional task for later, you could go out foraging for nettles and make your own edible goblin recipe!

Week 3 - Thursday 21st January 2021


Your task today is to create your own poem, based on the poem 'Six Things Found in a Hobbit's Knapsack'. 


As an extra challenge, you could have a go at creating a shoe box or flower pot world for your goblin to live in!
