Writing from sound

This exercise will help your pupils to create a narrative from the sound effects they have made.

After creating your sound effects, write down as many keywords as you can, and use these to generate sentences.

Use the words and images as inspiration to create a narrative entitled ‘A Force of Nature’.

Who is your main character?
How do they become embroiled in battling a force of nature?
What danger do they experience?
How does the story end?

Create your story and add it to our Padlet wall.
