Great Writing Challenge: Chaos Bomb #2

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

S2 pupils working through the Great Writing Challenge faced their second Chaos Bomb when they were asked to investigate a wild location which would put one of their characters into danger.

We discussed the various kinds of danger that a character might face, including extreme weather, lack of oxygen, animals, deep water and heights, before classes descended upon the books to begin their research.

For some pupils, this was a relatively easy task as they had already planned an accident as part of their plot, but others had to apply more thought to expand their original ideas.

Staff also reminded pupils that it was perfectly acceptable writing practice to alter their plots to include new working, characters and settings, manoeuvring the various elements to make the best overall piece of writing.
