Writer's Workshop - New World

New World

She had already travelled so far, yet still had so much further to go. This was just the beginning of her journey.

She began today like every other: sitting with her line in the water, hoping to catch a bite for breakfast.

It had been over three weeks since she had seen another person, three weeks since the land had disappeared…

Question time!
- Where do you think the land has gone?

- How will people survive in this ‘water-world’?

- Is there more land or water on Earth?

- Is it better to live in a place with too much water or not enough water?

- What do you think the girl had to drink when she was out at sea?

Sentence challenge!

Which ending would make this word an adverb? - slow

slowness       slowest       slower       slowly

Can you use adverbs in your writing today?

Perhaps you could use adverbs to show the possibility of something happening e.g. perhaps, surely, possibly, maybe.

Perhaps she would find other people soon.

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?

The fish swam through the water. The girl sat on the fish with her fishing rod.

Perfect picture!

Imagine that people could no longer live on land, but had to live in the sea. What would their new home look like? Draw or write down what you have imagined.
