My superhero narrative

WHAT? I have been writing a superhero narrative

SO WHAT? It's about a mysterious superhero named Ancient Knight and his pets, Alpha the magic wolf and Kay the magic stallion.

We use past tense words unless it's inside speech marks, and new speaker, new line

NOW WHAT? I want it to sound more exciting so I need to use better vocabulary

When the year 5's were on camp

When the year 5's were on camp, we had Mrs Casey until they came back.We made plans, but I think I was the only one that made a plan by themselves. I followed my plan, well, most of it.

I planned to do art, SSW, crosswords, word searches, superhero stuff, reading, PP making and other stuff. I also put in specific times, like superhero, 09:25 - 09:50, etc. Not everything went to plan and I changed some stuff, but it was OK.

I really enjoyed doing the Kahoots and sand art. I also enjoyed doing a crossword and word searches. For free time we did Kahoots, puzzles, superhero stuff and passion projects. We had a good time.

I am learning to understand how words are formed using roots, prefixes and suffixes.
