Historical Narritive

Today I finally finished my Historical Narrative about the Eureka Stockade. Here are five pointers to help you write a good Historical Narrative:

  • To use 3 to 5 facts

It wont be a Historical Narrative if it doesn’t have facts because then it should be called a Narrative

  • To let your imagination run wild

It is ok to let your imagination into your work because it make it your Historical Narrative but don’t forget to put those fatc in there

  • Use language that your Historical Narrative takes place in the setting and the year it’s placed in.

It is important to use language that your Historical Narrative takes place and the year it’s in because then it makes your Historical Fiction more realistic and it makes the writing better

  • It is best to research your Historical event

You should research you Historical event because then you have background information on your event and that makes it easier to write

  • Explain key facts and places in the text

It is easy to forget to explain your facts because you can be so caught up in the ‘Narrative’ part of the story and not focusing on the ‘Historical’ part of the story

So that five pointers to write a excellent Historical Narrative, but if you could write a Historical Narrative what would it be and why?

The jobs are Discussion Director, Creative Connector, Super Summariser, Word Wizard, Question Master and Illustrator. You have to complete the job by the date given or you will have to do it at lunchtime. If you could choose a book for Literacy Circles what would it be and why?

The Switch

Hi Guys!

Today in Literacy Matrix watched and respond and it was called the switch. It’s about Ronaldo bumping into this kid called lee and they switch minds and become one another. Ronaldo becomes as skillful as Lee was (not very good) and Lee became as skillful as Ronaldo is because they are two different people in two different bodies. Lee eventually plays for England and Ronaldo still plays for Portugal and they smash into each other and regain there own body! After watching the video we had to answer a whole lot of questions, like write a summary of the video and what was the key messages and so on. I wondered if Ronaldo agreed to do the video or he had to do because his manager told him to. Is the Portugal team that is in the video, actually the team in real life? Did the person who plays Lee, have to learn Portuguese because he talks in Portuguese at the start, when Ronaldo realize he turns into a kid? If you could play for any country in the world for the world cup, what country would you want to play for and why?

Class Meeting

Hi World!

Have you ever been in a meeting? Well yesterday we had our very first Class Meeting and to me it was a success! We talked about Donald Trump, who at the moment is running for US president, and we watched a video about how kids watch videos and short clips about how he talks to people. Most of the kids hated him but there is always one or two kids who will support him. Do you want Donald Trump as the US president? Here is the video about the kids:

Buddies!

For the first time this term we had buddies. My buddy’s name is Ollie! He was really funny telling me his lion jokes 🙂 eg. who is the sulk of the jungle? The lion! We had to help them research a animal, his animal was the King of the jungle! Do you know him? Yes, the Lion! Fun fact: a lion’s fur turns darker as the lion gets older.
