For this lesson, look carefully at these pages from the book.

There isn't any text to describe the journey, but the pages do show the journey Arthur took across the sea.


Your task today is to write a recount of that journey.

It is up to you whether you want to write the recount as a story or a diary entry.


Watch the video below, this will help remind you of the key features of a recount. 

Then, start to plan your writing by looking through these lenses.

What do you notice, hear, feel, touch, smell?


Now think about if you can add extra detail or engage the reader by using these lenses.

Before you start to write your ideas, think about how you are going to structure your sentences using these lenses.
Remember, to structure your writing into paragraphs. I look forward to seeing your work later. smiley
