Main: To write a story beginning 

Remember our over goal this week is to write our own adventure story. It needs to include your characters entering a portal, in Manea, which takes them to a new land. Whilst there they embark on some form of an adventure- and meet other mythical creatures. 


Have a look at this website to help you think about what your adventure story needs to include. 


Most stories have a beginning, middle and end.

  • In the beginning, establish your setting and characters.
  • In the middle, you could add conflict and a problem to solve.
  • At the end there could be a dramatic rescue. The ending could be happy or sad.


Today we are going to start to write our beginnings.
