|Children from Homefield Prep School reading and finding out|
I will be visiting Homefield Preparatory School (Sutton, Surrey SM1 2TE) on 17th September 2012. As with all things, I like to carry out some research and find things out before I do something. I looked at the Homefield Prep School website to find out about them. These three quotes were on the school's home page.
|T. S. Eliot - Poet - Nobel Prize Winner - Literature - 1948|
|Albert Einstein - Scientist - Nobel Prize Winner - Physics - 1921|
"The only place you'll find success before work is in the dictionary." May B. Smith
Firstly, think carefully about what the words mean. If you're not sure, ask your teacher or someone who might know.
|Ask someone who might know|
I like to find some pictures of the person who said the quoted words as well. Looking at pictures gives me a 'feel' for a person or place or time and ideas come into my head.
Using the the W words for research into quotations and finding out all about the person with pictures gives me lots of ideas for characters (Who is in the story), settings (When and Where is the story set), and plots (What happens in the story).
You can do the same. Ask lots of questions, look everywhere you can for the answers, and collect pictures to give you more ideas.
As Albert Einstein - one of the cleverest people who has ever lived - said...
'The important thing is not to stop questioning.'
See you next time in the Story House.
Happy writing... and reading!
