    Grade5/6 are investigating writing narratives. We want the children to create stories that have the “WoW” factor and to have an understanding of different genres. (Eg: realistic fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, Sci-Fi, Action / Adventure.) We have begun a series of lessons including “sizzling starts”, “startling scenery” and” charismatic characters.”  We are modelling and encouraging children to ban the boring bits, start where the action is and to use dynamic dialogue. We will have examples of these soon.
