Extending Narrative - Plans and Resources
These are a set of plans and resources for a couple of weeks of work on non-linear texts. The main stimulus is one of the old style text adventure computer games (I've included a link to this). The end product is the kids producing their own adventure text in groups, taking responsibility for the illustrations, writing, cover and blurb.
I wrote this unit as a bit of a wind down after SATs. We do some Greek Play work and then move on to this - it's a nice way to finish the year, as the children use all of what they've learnt through the year to produce a really nice final piece of work to cap off the year.
It took around about 3 weeks in the end - there's a lot packed in, and I used it a lot in the final week of term as a good independent project.
