Year 6: Mystery Story Writing

We have very busy in Year 6 over the past 3 weeks, focussing on story writing. We investigated the different types of stories (ghost, action, adventure, funny, love, science fiction etc.). We then read lots of short mystery stories and discussed mysteries which we have seen on television, such as The Famous Five and Scooby Doo, which enabled us to decide upon the essential elements for a mystery story. We were then in a position to create useful plans which helped guide us and keep us on track, enabling us to write our own fantastic and very exciting mystery stories. We are very proud of them. So Year 6 children are now expert authors! We would be proud to share our finished stories with you!
