Why do we tell stories?

Beth wyt ti'n meddwl?


Today we will be writing a historical story. These are story that are based on facts but also have elements created by the author (that's you!).


The WAGOLL's you will see are based on Pamela's brother - Ronnie's story. When planning your own story, your can create your own problem or use this as inspiration too! Cofia... even though the rough plot is the same, your stories will be completely different as you will be focusing on vocabulary choices. 

 Using a basic story mountain! Use words and pictures to answer the questions in the boxes.


 Using a full story mountain! Make brief notes in each box.


 Using a story circle! Hmmm, this looks different! How does it work? A story circle is all about the character learning or changing from the event that happens in the story. E.g., A selfish character going through a difficult time making them more kind, grateful or understanding. 





Wyt ti wedi gorffen?

How would you adapt your resolution to create a different ending?
