He has looked at different settings and words to describe those settings, listened to some spooky noises and recorded what he could hear, and produced a story map to follow when he writes it up. This week, we are working on developing his characters. AH is eager to begin his story, I will post some more pictures when it is complete. Well done on your enthusiasm AH towards your literacy work.
