WARM UP

Using direct speech

When writing a comic strip, speech is put into speech bubbles and we don't have to use inverted commas. Rewrite these comic strip conversations. What synonyms can you use for 'said' to show the manner in which the character is speaking?

Creative Writing Challenge

Challenge Day 3! Today you can choose which character's point of view you write as. You could write as a person who hates sunflowers, or maybe a rival flower...

Things to include in your writing:

- fronted adverbials for when and where

- subordinate clauses for extra information

- expanded noun phrases for detail description

- direct speech (use SCAPS to help!)
