Literacy support 

This week, your writing challenge is to write an 800 word story called "Once Upon a Robot". Create a story featuring any kind of robot your imagination can conjure. The story could take place on Earth, in space or even on another planet!

Remember to be as creative as you can. Think carefully about creating an interesting character and setting description. How can you develop your character? Will you use speech to advance the action? Will there be a problem that your robot has to solve? Will they find themselves in grave danger or will they be the ones to rescue someone? The possibilities are endless…

Try to achieve these learning objectives:

  • WALT use dialogue to add pace and excitement
  • WALT to ensure that our speech is punctuated correctly
  • WALT use 'edingly' openers to keep the reader engaged
  • WALT use pronouns and synonyms to avoid repetition.
