Task – Story Writing

This week, your task is to write a story all about space! Remember there must be a problem that needs to be solved.

Use the planning sheet to plan your space story into five paragraphs before starting.

(Your paragraphs don’t need to be too long, so your story should be around an A4 sheet long).

What I’m Looking For

  • 5 paragraphs:
    • Description of your main character (this could be an astronaut or an alien)
    • Description of the setting (this could be a planet or spaceship)
    • A problem your main character has
    • How your main character solves the problem
    • Ending

Grammar Focus

  • Conjunctions (and, but, or, because, when, if)
