Dear Year 6,
We are going to be practicing slow writing this week in class. Slow writing is narrative, descriptive writing inspired by a picture or video. It’s when every sentence you write is lovingly and SLOWLY crafted with specific features and devices. The purpose of slow writing is to help you SHOW an image with your words. It helps us to paint the picture for the reader!
We craft our sentences from an ingredient list, for example, a list like the following:
Your first sentence must contain only three words.
Your second sentence must begin with three related adjectives.
Your third sentence must describe feelings / action inside the body, then describe feelings / actions outside the body.
And so on…
To prepare for your slow writing in class, your homework for Monday 16th November 2020 is to complete your DADWAVERS plan based on a WWII Blitz picture as fully as possible (you’ve been given a DADWAVERS sheet in class to take home). You have completed these before now, but in case you’ve forgotten, here’s an example of what’s expected in a DADWAVERS plan:
And here’s your WWII Blitz picture for inspiration, as well as a video link!
When you’ve finished, type your three PROUDEST words/phrases/sentences into the comments below. This will be a great way to share your strongest ideas back in class!
I can wait to read your third choice DADWAVERS ideas!
