Today, you are going to start writing the story, from the point of view of one of the meerkats. This means that you will be writing in 1st person, using pronouns such as I (this must be a capital letter!), me, my, our, we.
This week’s extract is the beginning of an Egyptian myth, retold by a modern writer called Vic Parker, about the beginning of the world, and how things came to be as they are. Do you know any other stories like this?
Now that you’ve watched it, list the things that you like about it, what you disliked about it, and any questions you have. You could do this in the comments section, so that we can all see and discuss it. 🙂
Then, you need to summarise the plot of the story. First summarise it in three sentences. Then, have a go at summarsing it in 20 words.
