Today we will be writing the beginning of our story using our plans from yesterday.
Listen to the story - How I became a Pirate.
Look at your plan from yesterday. The beginning of your story should describe the characters and the setting.
One hot sunny day, I was at the beach building a sand castle when suddenly I could see a ship. I knew what it was because it had a huge black flag with a skull and crossbones on it. It was a pirate ship! I could hear the pirates singing, 'Hey, ho, blow the man down.' I tried to tell my parents but they were busy with my baby sister. From the corner of my eye I could see the old, wooden ship coming closer to the shore. I looked up and saw a scruffy pirate with green teeth. He was wearing a red, velvet jacket and had a silver shiny sword in his pocket. He looked at me and said, "He's a digger, he is and a good one!"
Now have a go at writing your own beginning it should include:
- finger spaces
- capital letters
- full stops
