Our writing sequence is based upon a video called 'Bubbles'. Towards the end of our writing sequence, we will be writing a fantasy narrative.
The video shows us the story of Gabby, who is a lonely little girl walking along a deserted beach. However, when it all seems blue, happiness may be close by… if you just look closely at your surroundings perhaps you will find it! Gabby is walking on the beach and finds a bottle of bubbles - when she blows it she gets transported into fantasy. She has fun riding on bubbles and meets people and things on her way.
A fantasy narrative is a story which is written in the third person (using he, she, his, hers, they, them, theirs). A fantasy narrative can include magical characters, an exciting setting and even some magical creatures. A fantasy story including events which may not be possible in places that may not be real. Towards the end of our writing sequence, we will be writing the story based upon a character who gets engulfed by a giant bubble which takes them floating into the ocean. The character discovers some unbelievable sea creatures and they cannot believe their eyes. Unfortunately, the character then faces a giant problem.. Who will come to their rescue?
We completed two verb arrows by filling them with various synonyms of walk and move. This will be helpful when we write our fantasy narrative because we can use our up-level synonyms of walk and move to tell the reader how Gabby moves across the beach and in her bubble.
We are moving to the analyse part of the writing sequence. We will be looking at our model text to pick out the features that we will need to include in our writing later on in our sequence.
