Task 1 (by Wednesday – 25/1)
This week, your homework is to plan a folktale (‘chwedl’) in Welsh.
This can be done in a variety of ways. One choice is to use the resources that are at the bottom of this message, but this isn’t the only way to plan. Some of you like to write notes( using bullet-point) or create a mind map, whilst others might prefer to write out the beginning of the folktale. You could also use the resources that I gave to you in class to help you with your planning.
Try to bear in mind the Success Criteria for Writing a Folktale!
- Present a problem and resolve a problem at the end of the story
- Conflict between individuals or groups of people
- Characters, creatures or objects with magical powers
- Character/s being sent on mission/s
- Descriptions of characters and locations – including the use of similes, metaphors and interesting adjectives
- Interesting openers – including the use of concise verbs (‘Berfau Cryno’)
- SPPLAT – including mutations (‘treigladau’) when including adjectives after ‘yn’ and correct use of the apostrophe
If you decide to continue with your Gwil Garw storyline – you can click below for more information about the characters and so on. You could continue with the task that you begun in Miss Harries’ lesson on Thursday afternoon as part of the planning process.
