This week in Dahl class, we have been busy planning and writing our own warning tales using our setting toolkit. Throughout our unit, we have read a range of texts to see how different authors write an effective setting description. We then constructed our setting toolkit, showcasing all of the different writerly tools we can use in our writing to describe a setting really well. Here are some of the tools we identified:
On Wednesday, we spent some time generating ideas for our own warning tale. We then planned our own stories, following the plot pattern, which we started writing on Thursday. We thought carefully about how we could use the setting toolkit to describe the setting in lots of detail so that the reader would be able to picture it in their head. There have been some fantastic ideas and I am really excited to read the rest of your stories later today!
Well done everyone – have a lovely weekend!
