Today we will be looking at writing the resolution and ending of our story
Before we start today's lesson, can you think about what you learnt yesterday? Tell someone in your family!
1. Last week we began planning our own story of Little Red Riding Hood (LRRH) and we wrote the beginning of our story where we introduced the main character and setting.
2. In today's lesson, we are going to write the resolution and ending of our story. Remember to include:
- RESOLUTION (what happens to solve the problem - In LRRH the 'resolution' was when the woodcutter heard the LRRH scream in the cottage and ran in to save her her by killing the wolf.
- ENDING ( In LRRH, the 'ending' involved LRRH promising never to go off the track and speak to strangers. She then lived 'happily ever after.'
3. In your remote Learning book, write today's date and underline it in pencil:
Wednesday 10th February 2021
4. Now write the LO and underline it in pencil:
LO: To write the ending of my story
5. Remember you are not re-writing the story of LRRH - you are writing your own story which you planned last week! Take a look at your plan now.
6. You should write two paragraphs - one for the resolution and one for the ending.
7. I have also written one to show you how your writing should look.
8. Once completed, re-read your work and check that you have included capital letters and full stops and that your writing makes sense!
10. Email your work to your teacher.
Example Resolution/Ending: I have decided to change my story and character so my resolution and ending will be different.
Remember to use time connectives to show how the story has moved on. Use conjunctions (and, but because) to add information.
Ravi became worried. Where was Geeta? What if something had happened to her? Quickly, he began to walk back, ‘Geeta, Geeta’ he called out her name, but the market was busy and there was lots of noise. He looked around, unsure of what he had to do… He had to find her! He saw an old woman sitting by the vegetable stall, ‘excuse me, have you seen my friend, she’s small and is wearing a blue dress’. The old woman shook her head. Ravi was distraught. He collapsed on the hot, messy pavement. He thought for a moment, and decided he would go home and tell his parents what had happened. Carefully, he made his way home through the crowds unable to think.
Suddenly he turned. In the distance, he could hear his name being called. He looked around again, He thought he was imagining it when out of the blue, he saw a slight figure dressed in blue, jump out in front of him. For a minute he was very angry. ‘Where were you?’ he shouted. ‘I was worried sick!’
‘Well’ began Geeta ‘I followed you and followed you, but then I couldn’t see you, so I decided to go and eat some pakoras – look I got you some!’
Ravi looked at Geeta’s face – he was so glad she was OK that he forgot he was cross with her! ‘Come on – let’s go home before it gets dark. We still have to buy sweets remember!’ Slowly, they walked towards the sweet shop before making their way home. From then on, Geeta always held Ravi’s hand in the market and they lived happily ever after.
