Great story HP! Miss Edge would be jealous she did not discover the panda: pandas are her favourite animal! 

IB - what an imaginative story - fancy finding trillions of pounds in a cellar. HM - it is a beautiful piece of writing which includes all the features we have spoke about. OH - an adder might be useful for Maths (I'm so funny - not). Like HM, you have clearly paid attention to the videos and you have used a lot of humour in your writing. Lovely writing WM - the layout and features have all been included!

Tuesday, 23rd February

Hopefully, you are now ready to complete your first draft. This will take 2 days to complete.  Therefore, I will not put anything on the blog for tomorrow!




  • Always refer to your plan when you are drafting your story
  • Write a line , miss a line to allow for editing. If you run out of space, carry onto the 2nd page of the template
  • When you have finished, check you have included all the features we discussed
  • Use the Conjunction word mat to help with your word choices
  • Most importantly, please watch the videos, which explain how to draft your article. There is a video for each part of the draft.
  • You do not need to worry about the layout. I will provide you with a TEMPLATE ( blank newspaper page) for your Golden Writing.


Good luck! I look forward to seeing your work! PLEASE COMPLETE THE QUIZ!
