LO: To use descriptive features to write a section of the story.
Watch the film again up to 3 minutes 38 seconds (I have posted it below) – the point when the eyes appear in the darkness of the cave.
Think about how the director/film maker has made the atmosphere seem scary or tense.
Discuss with your parents or older sibling how we could do that as writers- the fact that everything is old and dark. There is a skeleton up against one tree and there are many faces of ancient stones watching him, which contribute to a negative atmosphere. The tension builds as it seems beautiful (the butterflies) but suddenly changes. Tension builds further as huge eyes appear in the darkness and we do not know who it is.
Below, I have attached a sequence of what happens in the dream section. This is called the bare bones, but it is just bullet points and there is NO description of what happens or any more detail. That’s your job!!!!
So today’s task is for you to write out the dream section, from the video. I want you to write it as if you are writing a piece of writing in your writing journal. So it will be beautifully neat, your sentences will be exciting, you will use capital letters and full stops and all the descriptive features we have spent ALL week looking at.
I want to be wowed by your writing!!!! Please don’t forget to send it to me on my email: firstname.lastname@example.org or post it on the blog!
Once you have finished your work, you can of course watch the video all the way through if you haven't already.
