Planning – Build Up / Problem
Let’s go into a little more detail! Plan both paragraphs using bullet points. In your bullet points you should be including:
Sentence openers (fronted adverbials, adverbs)
Key words (adverbials, adjectives)
Phrases (alliteration, metaphors, similes, expanded noun phrases)
Short sentences (which could be expanded upon)
Plan in chronological/sentence order
Remember to include the following in your planning:
Introduce the main characters
Don’t need to repeat the characters so far in the story. Say what they are doing.
Introduce the story setting
Describe the sea … is there any Sarcastic Seaweed or other mysterious creatures?
Think about the weather, time of day, what it would be like for each of the characters!
Develop the characters and the setting
Are there any new characters?
Do they have a conversation?
Where are they? How far are they from the Hallowed Shallows?
The points that lead up to the conflict or climax (high point) in the story
Do they see something in the distance?
Does the weather change?
Today, we are focusing on a famous artist called Paul Klee. He produced about 9000 pieces of art in his lifetime: landscapes, seascapes, still life and most interestingly for us, fish!
Here are some of his pictures. What do you think? How do they make you feel? What can you see: Do they have anything in common?
Paul Klee once said, ' A line is a dot that went for walk'. You are going to explore this idea in a piece of art today. Read the Lesson Plan and click on the link to learn more about Paul Klee's life and art.
