20/04/20 - Flotsam - week 2
Create your own Flotsam character
- Lesson 1
Pick 6 items that could be found on a beach & could give clues about your character & their background.
Your character could be:
- an explorer
- cruise ship passenger etc.
Draw & label the items, explaining why they are significant.
Write a description of the character you created yesterday.
Think about your vocabulary choices and sentence structures. Try to avoid starting every sentence with a pronoun (He...)
Use some of the word mats below to support your writing and /or use a Thesaurus (book or online) to help you to use more adventurous vocabulary.
Lesson 3 (You have 2 days for this task so try to include plenty of detail)
Choose one of the children from the photographs & create a biography for them.
- Who were they?
- Where were they from?
- Why were they at the beach that day?
Extension: Could you turn this into a diary entry of your chosen child's day at the beach?
