First, we would like you to sequence the key events in the story:

Sequencing activity

Once you have all the events in the correct order, this will become a plan to help you rewrite the story.

We are going to give you 2 days to retell the story, from the girl’s point of view. We are looking for:

– For you to write in first person (as the girl)
– A range of punctuation
– Exciting vocabulary
– Different sentence lengths
– For you to imply how the characters are feeling rather than just tell the reader e.g. Mara held her breath as the plane took flight.
– Correct spellings

Here is an example written by another Year 6 child to help you: Soar Example
