Today is the Friday Maths Challenge on the White Rose Maths Hub website.
You now have all of the tools required to write your own portal story. You may like to write about a mort traditional portal that leads you to a magical word, or you may prefer to draw upon your own personal experiences, as we have explored over the last few days.
To recap on the main points:
a. Describe the portal in detail. You may want to show the portal through the eyes of the main character.
b. Think about what lies on the other side of the door. Allow yourself the opportunity to write about what interests you and what is important to you.
c. Great writers steal ideas (‘magpie’) from other great writers. Reflect upon the portal stories that you have loved reading and consider what made these so engaging. Try to bring in some of these skills and techniques into your own work.
d. Enjoy it. Writing is all about sharing a passion for words, stories and the world of possibility. If you love the story you are writing – so too will your reader.
★ Now write your portal story, drawing on all that you have learned. Don’t forget to share or publish your work – great writing deserves an audience!
Secondary School Scavenger Hunt
