Flashback narrative stories - March 2019
We have been writing stories with a flashback in English. These were based on the book 'Journey to Joburg' and our stories were written from the perspective of Naledi, who is the main character. The story begins as Naledi is sat in the hospital waiting for her baby sister to come out and then we flashback to find out how they got there.
Flashback stories are unique as they require a switch in tenses - starting and ending in the present with the majority of the story in the past.
After we had written the stories (they are quite long!), we had a go at peer editing. We peer edit a lot and it's really useful to try and spot where our partner has met the Writer's Toolkit. You can see some photos of our great peer editing below.
Have a look at the 'WOW' examples below too which are written by Ali-Sher, Aleena and Mehnaz.
