Before you start writing think about the setting and imagine you are there.
The opening sequence of this film swoops across the Normandy landing beaches.
It is to here that we are taken, first we see the eye of a scared soldier and then a group of soldiers huddled together on transport vessels ready for battle.   Once discharged they race up the beach – it is at this point that we realise that something isn’t quite right.
Two young boys are caught up in the battle surrounded by pale, paper-faced soldiers.



Create  
WALT write a narrative through the eyes of one of the children or one of the soldiers.

  • Think about how the men on the boat would have been feeling as they huddled on the boat on their way to their impending doom.
  • Think about words to describe the battleground, what you see, smell, taste, hear. Try to use words that create the mood.
  • Now…..Write a first person narrative through the eyes of one of the children or one of the soldiers..

Beyond the line

I was sitting on the rusty old ship.It was as rusty as an old rusty scooter.As I was sitting there thinking how it would be going to war in Turkey, I look at the ramp going down and I get ready to run.


I start running, I run out of the ship. As I’m running out of the ship I can already see bombs blowing up.This was louder than I’ve ever heard, I didn’t think that war was like this.

As I look around I see people die every minute. I hide behind some metal to try and dodge the bullets and bombs.

I look in front of me and and I see the blood dripping down his leg. As I'm sitting down I think to myself the longer I run, maybe I will go faster to get to our trenches,  I hope.

I get up and  start running again I just felt like the bombs and bullets were getting closer and closer to me. I heard people yelling in pain. I feel like I should go back and help him, but I think to myself I’ve got to keep going I can't risk it.

We finally got to our trenches but there was only about 30 of us left.Most of my friends got killed apart from 2 of them. I could smell rats, blood, mud and more I couldn’t believe what happened.


Now I look back at it and think to myself why did I go?  What did I think it would be like. It was an experiment and  I didn’t believe that could happen.


I’m lucky to survive and  about 15 of us survived.That's what war in the old days was about it wasn't a vacation.

The cloud

The Cloud             
Make a copy, rename and start your writing on your copy.

The cloud came from the sea.....
He was not like other clouds,
The wind could not command him,
The more he saw, the more he did,
And the more he did, the more he became,
You see he wasn't just a cloud...
He was a cloud made of more.

Before you start writing think about the following questions:
Where this strange cloud came from?  It cannot be commanded by the wind, who is controlling it? Does the cloud have a purpose in life? Does the cloud have a personality?


Create  
WALT write a narrative.

Describe the cloud growing up, being just another ordinary cloud in the sky until one day..... Something happened to change all that.

We know we have done this when:
We have written what the cloud is thinking as it discovers what it’s purpose is in life and we have described some of the adventures that have happened.


Go to this padlet The Cloud and start writing your ideas, words feelings adjectives similies and metaphors.

The cloud

I was made by a spy company called ASP that means agent spy people.But only the people that want to apply or work there know the name.When people walk past they normally think what kind of name is that ASP thats such a weird name.But they just don't know the meaning of it.The person who created me was a person that actually made me at her house.That's how she got the job because if you want the job you’ve got to make something that will impress the boss.I’ve been on many different missions to help the police get evil villains and bad people.There's this one mission that I have to do it’s to find out where he lives and keeps people and turns them evil.His name was Mega Crush.But really he's actually a dwarf he just makes robots to destroy the city and to catch people like police, good people, spies and more.I was traveling around when I saw a purple tower it looked like a Mega Crush  tower.I look around I see a window.I make myself smaller so I can fit through it.I see Mega Crush I turn invisible so he can't see me. He’s putting a chord in one of his robots.I quickly grab water and chuck it at him.I escape out the window as I’m watching the tower blow up.I got lots of interviews from lots of different news reporters and every night  I go home and replay them.THE END
