English:

This week you are going to write your own story based on the story Pippety Skycap – A Tale of Mischief.

Your task  today is to rewrite  the first two paragraphs to make a new story of your own.

You can use the structure of our model text for your own story .You might want to  change the  beginning  (Once upon a time)  characters, setting, events etc. Don’t forget your title!

 

Here is an example of what I  would write:

                                                     Felicity Glitterdust – A story of Fun and Giggles!

A very long time ago there was a fairy called Felicity Glitterdust who lived in a little box in a tiny bedroom.

 

Here are the  the first two paragraphs-  I have highlighted things you might want to change.

Pippety Skycap – A tale of mischief!

 

Once upon a time, there was a pixie called Pippety Skycap who lived in the corner

cupboard in a room just like yours. Pippety loved to have fun and loved to giggle,

but most of all he loved to play tricks.

 

One cloudy morning, he woke up feeling full of mischief. So, he put on his best

blue jacket, squeezed into his spotty boots and set off to find some fun – hoppity

skip, hoppity skip, hoppity skip.

 

This is your story! you don’t  have to add in all details as in your model text, for example you could leave out where your character lived.

 

Finally – Remember to think about:

  • Your best handwriting.
  • Say your sentences out loud before you write to make sure they make sense.
  • Use your phonics to sound out words you are unsure of.
  • Add capital letters and full stops where needed eg, beginning of a sentence and for names.

the feather. “A-A-A-CHOO!” The poor old troll woke up with a huge sneeze and

tried to grab the tricky pixie. Luckily, Pippety was a tiny pixie, a teeny pixie and

“OUCH! OUCH! OUCH!” The poor cat spun round with a yowl and a howl and swiped

at the tricky pixie. Luckily, Pippety was a tiny pixie, a teeny pixie and he dodged

Unfortunately, Pippety had not seen that on the next lily pad was the King

Toad. It looked at him with mean, beady eyes, flicked out an enormous tongue

and covered him in a thick, sticky goo! “YUCK!” cried Pippety and he ran off,

squishing and squelching and squelching and squishing all the way home.

That evening, Pippety Skycap had a long, hot bath, snuggled up with a mug of

hot chocolate and thought about his day. He remembered the sticky, oozy goo

that had covered him head to foot and frowned. “I’ll just have to be a careful

tricky pixie tomorrow,” he mumbled and settled down to plan some more

mischief!
