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 looked closely at the character of Gabby and how she was feeling throughout her adventure. We also mentioned what she saw throughout her adventure.
