Unit 1: Adelita - The Mexican Cinderella - A Rags to Riches Traditional Tale

Our Talk Story...

Monday 18th January

 

LO. To be able to draft an introduction and build up for a traditional tale

I ran remember to:

- write an opening which introduces the characters and sets the scene

- describe the events building up to the problem

- use dialogue (speech) between my characters to move the story on 

- include details about when, where and how things happen

If you need a little bit of help getting started, try using the substitution grids below to give you some ideas!

LO. To be able to draft a problem, resolution and ending for a traditional tale

I ran remember to:

- describe the problem faced by the main character

- explain how the characters overcome and resolve the problem

- finish my story with a happy ending

If you get stuck with your writing at any point, there is a copy of our model text, Adelita at the top of this page.
