Extinction Narratives

This week, Year 3 are writing stories about the extinction of dinosaurs.  They watched a short video clip of a meteor hitting the planet and discussed what would have happened after and what it would have been like.  They created a large story mountain, in small groups, and used images to plan an ‘introduction’, a ‘build-up’, the ‘problem’ and and ‘ending’ to the story.  They then added adjectives to help bring the images to life.  

Throughout the week, they will use these story mountains to create an exciting yet informative narrative.  They will be learning how to use complex sentences to make their writing varied and interesting.  Come and have a read if you want to experience the dinosaur extinction!
