Writing Narrative

I am learning to write a narrative story.
I'll know I can do this when my stories have:
- Character - Setting - Introduction - Problem - Climax - Conclusion - Descriptive language such as smilies and metaphors - Character speech using speech marks

'This is my narritive plan.'

'This is a narritive I have been writing.It is about my first day at school.'
''Something I found hard was trying to get ideas for my plan.''
''Something I learned was how to write speech marks.''

Creative Writing - Script

We are learning to write scripts to create a play.

We know we are successful if our script has:
- multiple characters
- a setting
- character speech
- stage direction (in a different colour to the speech)

Once we have written our scripts we are creating the plays using Puppet Pals.

My play is called "Esther's Play"
