Narrative writing

In this lesson, we will establish the key features of narrative writing. We will plan a response together, thinking about what we want to achieve and then looking specifically at the introduction, climax and conclusion. You will then have an opportunity to review and refine your response by following our success criteria. At the end of the lesson, there will be a recap quiz to consolidate our learning.
