Bild/Engelska-projekt vt 19, 4D

Our storybook.

These next couple of weeks we are doing a collaboration between English and Art and the theme this time is fairytales and stories. We are going to make a storybook with the class’ stories.

The Art part of the project is to illustrate the characters and the settings through a technique called collage and to do the layout of each page.

The English part of the project is to write a story in English. When everything is done we are going to make copies for everyone in the class so you can read your classmates stories.

At the Thursday-lessons we are mainly focusing on the Art-part of the project since Camilla is present during those lessons and on the Friday-lesson English will be our main focus.

Project plan

These weeks you will write a short story. You may choose what kind of story you want to

write but we suggest that you choose among the following genres (story types):


Love Story

Detective Story



Science Fiction



Before you start writing you need to figure out what your story is going to be about. Your

writing will start with the making of a mind-map. Make sure you can fill in the following

facts about your story before you start writing:

Protagonist (hero/main character):

Sex/Name/Age/Nationality/Occupation/Physical description/Character


Background and setting: Time and place for your story.

Plot summary: make a short summary of what will happen in your story

• Remember that the same writing rules apply for English as for Swedish, that is you start

your sentences with a capital letter, you use commas and final stops, you don’t change

tenses in the middle of the story, you try not to write spoken language, you divide your

text into paragraphs etc.


Week 3:

Friday: Mandus is presenting the project.

Week 4:

Thursday: Everybody should have a thought of what your story will be about so that you can start thinking about the design and layout of your frontpage for the story. Camilla is presenting the Art-part of the project. We are also going to look at some English short-stories to see how the structure is.  

Friday: Make your mindmap and thereafter start writing your story.

Week 5, 6, 7 and 8:

We keep on working with our stories and the layout of the different pictures we need. .

Week 10:

Friday: Last day of the project/redovisning. This means that you have to be finished with your story no later than the 8th of March.

I jumped into a pair of jeans and a sweater and sneaked down into the garden to find out

Jimmy was walking slowly. He felt sad. Everything had turned out wrong today. After all

he wasn’t the one who had beaten Fiona. And it wasn’t he who had fought with Eric. But
