Well that was a fun ride! The Grade 5s at Shatin Junior School and I spent five fabulous sessions this week Nailing the Narrative Curve, with a great deal of attention to Story Planning! And what funny stories we constructed together! There was the lamb chop which turned into a lamb in Butchertown; the painting which bit its painters and sent them on a rollicking adventure in King Arthur’s Court; the married scientists who were saved from boiling alive in a giant volcano by a talking dog; the evil skull-faced old lady who killed a whole classroom but was defeated by a fire-wizard student, and last but not least, the boy who fell of a ladder in the kitchen and ended up in Venezuela! Have fun writing up your first drafts, but remember….follow the story plan!
