Today we will be writing the next paragraph (box 2) of our own version of Little Red Riding Hood. Think about what was on your story plan from Friday. Start a new paragraph under yesterday's work  (put the short date in the margin) Say where your character is going, through the park or through the town or along the river etc. Use lots of adjectives to describe your setting. Then your character meets the baddie character, (fox, bear- whoever was on your plan) Describe your baddie character and explain that your main character tells them where they are going. Then stop there for today.  ‘Think, say, write, check’ each sentence and check your punctuation. Extend your sentences with ‘because' or 'so' if you can. See if you can use a similie today- "as big as a house" or "as hairy as a monkey" etc.
