- Next, create your own plan for your adventure story! Remember to use some of the ideas you have come up with across the previous lessons – character names, settings and spy gadgets! If you are struggling with ideas, have a look at the Story Ideas page.


Lesson 9 and 10


LI: create a story


Over the next two lessons, use this time to create your adventure story, using the plan you created to help you. Remember to make your adventure story interesting by using good vocabulary and you could always have a go at using direct speech. Have a look back at the original story for ideas on what grammar you can include in your writing (remember you know about fronted adverbials, conjunctions, noun phrases, expanded noun phrases, direct speech, prepositions, Name – adjective pair – sentence and Tell: show 3 examples; sentence.) Take your time and remember to include what you have created – spy gadgets, settings and character names – and make sure you keep reading over your work to check it makes sense! Have fun!
