  3. 3. Predicting
  4. 4. Comprehension • What is the first thing that’s said? • How many totems were at the start view? • Where do they live? • How many generations have lived there? Recall questions • What kind of person is Hiccup? • Does the main character feel he fits in? Inference questions • How does Hiccup feel towards Astrid? • Why does Hiccup think his life will be better if he kills a dragon?
  5. 5. Sentence level
  6. 6. Text analysis
  7. 7. Trading cards Based upon a card in the book and information we had found out. The children wrote their own for a character from the book. They then redrafted these and created their own cards.
  8. 8. Super-short story A grammatical focus was using relative pronouns. So the children wrote their own sentence using these. Then chose the shot type and drew an image of the shot. From this they filmed their own super-short story.
  9. 9. Text focus Then, from the text, we hunted for ‘good’ words. We then used these to write our own sentences in this style. These were kept in a vocab bag to reuse.
  10. 10. Setting We watched the introduction to the film again and looked at the setting. We discussed how the film didn’t describe it but as writers we would.
  11. 11. Characters Again based on the film, we looked at characters and any flaws they had. Hiccup was opposite to all his family= didn’t fit in. The children created their own characters with a flaw.
  12. 12. Problem Decision wheel Writing to extend from this decision wheel.
  13. 13. Big write They then finally wrote their own story in the style of ‘How to train your dragon’.
  14. 14. Next… News report on a dragon attack. The children will create a script and then film it. For this activity I will introduce them to their film teams.
