Today, we are beginning our new writing sequenced which is a fantasy narrative based upon a video named 'Bubbles'.
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 would like you to have a great time pretending you are the character (Gabby) in the video. If you have a bottle of bubbles in your house then this is the perfect opportunity to use them!
In the first few seconds of the video, Gabby is strolling across the beach and she suddenly finds a plastic bottles of bubbles. - You could walk around your living room and discover a bottle of bubbles on the floor. As you start to blow, one giant bubble appears and you are taken off of your feet and you jump onto each bubble, just like steppingstones.
If your bubble could take you anywhere in the world, where would you go? Who would you visit?
Please see the model on the PowerPoint to show you a good example of the task.
