We have loved our new Ready Steady Write unit on this gorgeous story! It was based around Icelandic and Viking myths and legends and the hero of our story, an intrepid explorer who goes by the name of Arthur, has to go on a perilous adventure to the Land of the Gods to save his little town. Thor gives him a vital mission with some very strange requests in order to defeat the gargantuan evil wolf, Fenrir. Look at these battle scenes we role-played! We had to use lots of writer’s knowledge such as: correct apostrophe use, expanded noun phrases, using nouns or pronouns to avoid repetition and using words to create an atmosphere of danger.
