Paragraphs and Pirates!



Write a story or description that is about 3 paragraphs long.

Using the picture to help you, write a paragraph about:

the pirate ship
under the water
the island

To help you, try writing a list for each paragraph. There is a lot going on in this picture so your lists should be easy to do. Once you have a list, create sentences about the picture.

For instance, one sentence might be, 'The ship has a big colourful sail with a patch on it'.

Don't forget, your description can be as exciting as a story, especially as the pirates are making their way to the island!

KS3 In front of everyone!


 

You have to talk in front of the whole class for twenty minutes!

You and your friends have been doing a group project together but it is your job to stand up and present the project to the rest of the class.

Using the headings below, write about what happens when you present the project.


The moments before standing up

Everyone is watching

How it feels to explain the project

Something goes well

Something goes wrong

How it works out in the end


Here are some ideas for a project in case you want to write about that too.

Polar Bears

Our Solar System

How to build a log cabin

Volunteering at the rescue centre

It didn't go well...



Write about something which went wrong. Not just wrong, horribly wrong, the kind where you pull a face every time you think about it.

You can either think of your own terrible event, use one that really happened to you or choose one from the ideas below.

Make sure to add lots of feelings because when things go this wrong, you will not be calm!

Ideas
You break the antique lamp even though you barely touched it
Your friend helped you eat all the party food, the day before the party
Dogs look good dressed in bridesmaid dresses
You thought it was switched off
