I have written the first part of the story. Have a look at my example.

Can you spot...

- the full stops and capital letters?

- A BOYS sentence?

- the verbs?

- the adjectives?



Writing Checklist

Have you told the story in the correct order?

Have you used full stops and capital letters?


Can you use a BOYS sentence? (but, or, yet, so)

You have to think about what flavour/flavours it would be, (you can make them as delicious or crazy as you like), how many scoops it would have, how would you serve it (a cone, a bowl, a rocket?!), how much it would cost and what you will call it?

I would love to see all your amazing ideas so please send me any pictures of your designs!

You can use paper and pens to do the design or you can use apps on your tablets, such as 'Paint'!
