4KM and 4KJ have been focussing on writing narratives in Literacy during the past few weeks.
A narrative is usually a fictional story and should include…
1. An introduction – This includes “who, what, where” information. Who is in the story? What is happening? Where is the story set?
2. A complication – Narratives usually have some kind of problem for the main characters.
3. A series of events – Several events happen in the story as the main characters attempt to solve the problem.
4. A resolution – The complication is solved.
5. A conclusion – The narrative finishes with a concluding paragraph to sum up the story for the characters.
6. A Moral – Sometimes the characters in the narrative learn a lesson, or a moral, about life.
Recently, students had to discuss a topic for a narrative with their families at home. All students came to school the following day with ideas for their stories.
For this task, everyone had to complete a narrative plan before beginning the writing process. After spending a few sessions working on their narratives, the students typed them up on the netbooks.
Here are some of our narratives
