Question time!

Who is Will? Why do you think he enjoys writing so much?

Is he extremely small, or is the book he is writing very large?

What does ‘he had an important job to do’ mean? Why is he writing? Is he writing for somebody?

What type of writing do you think it is?

What is inside the box?

Imagine you could see the rest of the room Will is in. Can you describe what it might contain?

Perfect picture!

Imagine the picture has zoomed out. Can you draw the scene you have imagined?

Story starter!

The process took a great deal of time and effort, but doesn’t anything that’s important to us?

Will gently moved the back of his hand across the parchment. He loved the feeling of it against his skin; it was smooth and silky like the fresh water of a spring cascading over his fingers.

Feeling relaxed, Will was a master of his trade. Words came as easily to him as song to a nightingale. The whole experience of writing filled his heart with pure joy, but at the same time Will knew he had to concentrate; he had an important job to do…

Sentence challenge!

Can you use adverbs in your writing to describe how something is done?

Can you use adverbs before nouns?

Can you use adverbs after nouns?

e.g. Carefully, Will brushed his hand across the parchment to check that the ink was dry.

Will carefully brushed his hand across the parchment to check that the ink was dry.

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need your help to get better. Can you help?

Will wrote on the paper. The letters were big. The paper was big as well. He loved writing.
