We are in the final phase of our King Arthur Story. Today we are going to plan our piece of writing. The focus of the piece is how we organise our writing into paragraphs. Please can you plan a new quest for King Arthur and his Knights. This will be a short story, made up of paragraphs that tell the reader what happens in a logical order. There is an example of a plan below and a short video to explain the story.
First create a mind map of the new quest and what you would like to happen in it. Then decide on a theme for each paragraph. Finally, organise each paragraph so that story flows in a logical order. By the end of this session you should have a mind map and a list of paragraph themes to organise your writing.
