In our English lessons, we have been learning to write quest tales. We were inspired by the story “The Knights Quest”, and recreated our own versions. A quest tale involves the main character going on a journey where something goes wrong and they need to overcome some obstacles. The obstacles are then overcome and the main character returns home.
When planning our own quest tale, we took part in some drama activities to support our ideas and get into character. We thought about what the character’s might be thinking and how they would express their emotions.
We used our senses when describing the setting in our stories.
We included expanded noun phrases to add more detail and included ambitious vocabulary, always keeping the reader in mind. An expanded noun phrase adds more detail to the noun by adding one or more adjectives. E.g. a huge tree, the large, royal castle. It can also add detail by saying where a noun is. E.g. a tree next to the house, the castle by the ocean.
Can you think of an expanded noun phrase to describe the settings above?
Comment on this post and tell us all about the quest tale that you wrote. Who were your main characters? Who was the evil character? What curse did they place on the kingdom? We look forward to reading your ideas!
