SCROLL DOWN until you find the video 'The catch'
I want you to write a recount of the story. Write out the story. I want you to focus on the emotions and the thoughts of the boy ( let's call him Bob) through the story. What is he feeling? What is he thinking to himself? Remember fronted adverbials for when, ( moments later...) how, ( suddenly...) and where ( sitting at river.....)
Here are some of the events to mention in your recount: how does he feel? What is he thinking?
Waiting with anticipation for the first catch,
- The distress caused by seeing the injured fox,
- Anger at the fox stealing the fish,
- Chasing the fox,
- Surprise and excitement at seeing the giant fish,
- Trying to catch it,
- The catch at the end.
Here is an example of an introduction:
Deep in the lush , vivid, Amazon forest with millions of tall trees and howling monkeys, Bob sat at the pond, fishing for his dinner. He was hungry. Also his whole family was looking to him to get some food today. He had been waiting all day to catch something. He thought he'd never get anything- maybe all the fish had gone from this pond. In addition, Bob wasn't looking forward to seeing his family with no fish for their supper.
Then suddenly, waking him out of his sadness, his fishing rod started to move.' Yes!' he thought to himself. Dinner is coming!
