LC: To write a historical narrative applying previously taught text structures and skills.


Now you have planned your Alfred the Great story, you are now ready to write it. This is your invented piece of work which means you have to do it all on your own. You will have to think carefully about everything you have learned about historical narratives last term. 



The key features of a historical narrative:

1.The story is set in a specific period of time.

2.The stories are based on well-known figures or

  famous events in history.

3.Vocabulary linked to the period of time

  is used.

Skills we have learned:
