Hi Frustrated here! My children have been working really hard and produced some excellent work in the lead up to writing their own quest myths! Yesterday we planned our stories in different sections and they were all really good. Today we began writing our story openings and I am pulling my hair out! I modelled some writing first, the children added to it on whiteboards, we made a list of success criteria with examples etc yet when they started their own everything has seemed to have gone out of their heads! I don't want to sound like a meanie because I know how hard storywriting is and they are only children, but I KNOW they can do better!! Does anyone have any general tips for storywriting with lower KS2? Any advice would be much appreciated!
