You need to imagine that you are a 10 year old Viking boy/girl. You wake up in the longhouse on a normal day and describe what's going on - as many small details as possible
Plan using this- Write down as many descriptive words as you can to describe what’s going on in the longhouse – Smells, what you see, sounds, tastes, what you feel!
Write a short paragraph describing waking up in a Viking longhouse, finish it when you have had your “dagmál” (breakfast) and are going out to do your jobs
Wilf – lots of description, smells sounds, sights, touch
Facts about family life in the longhouse, breakfast, jobs, what it looks like
Past tense & 3rd person – describe it like a storybook would –
No plot, no action (that will come later) just description of the longhouse.
Use this to help you –
