For English today, we're going to be using our plans to write the first three paragraphs of our account of the return to Quetico by the narrator in "Francis". This will include:
- an introduction explaining why he's going back
- a paragraph describing what Quetico is like when he gets there
- a paragraph describing rowing to the middle of the lake
We will look at these in more detail in the 10am Zoom call.,

Today we are going to carry on with our work on writing an account of the narrator's return to Quetico.
We will look at these in detail on the Zoom call at 10am but here's what needs to be included:
P1 - an introduction explaining why he's going back
P2 - a paragraph describing what Quetico is like when he gets there
P3 - a paragraph describing rowing to the middle of the lake
P4 - a paragraph about what's lurking in the water (use what you wrote last week to help)
P5 - a paragraph which is the climax of the story - the most exciting part where your character is in the most danger.
P6 - an ending where the problem gets resolved, perhaps ending with the line: "I did knock first"
Don't forget to:
- show don't tell what your character is feeling.
- build suspense by hinting at dangers but without giving too much away
- use descriptive noun phrases
- use fronted adverbials
- use ellipses... to create tension and brackets to add feelings
