You are going to write the next part of your story today. Have a look at the story map from Monday to remind yourself what happens next.

 

Today Miss Rycroft and Mrs Fernandes will be looking to see if you can:

  • use time adverbials to move the story on
  • use conjunctions to join ideas in a sentence
  • use different types of punctuation

 

After sailing for many weeks, gigantic icebergs appeared on the horizon and Aaisha saw lots of beautiful shapes in the ice. But soon the ice got thicker and thicker… until eventually the boat ran aground on the ice!

 

Fortunately, Aaisha had a hot air balloon on board. She pumped it up, unhitched the rope and up it went! As night fell, the spectacular Northern Lights lit up the sky. But the balloon sailed too high and was hit by a passing satellite! The balloon plummeted downwards.

“AAAAAHHH!” Aaisha screamed with fright.

  2. 'and' and 'but' are used to join ideas in sentences
  3. This time exclamation marks (!) are used at the end of some of the sentences.
