We are going to use reading to help  us write our own dialogue passages . Why is dialogue important? It breaks up the narrative.  Makes our writing lively. Its useful for characterisation.  Excellent for showing reactions to events  and relationship between characters. It helps to tell the story from different views.

Who speaks first? What does the dialogue tell you about the character of the oldest daughter.

Add the narrative Sometimes we can loose detail in our writing if we only use dialogue. Always add description to passages of dialogue so that your reader is not only hearing what is said but can see what is happening, where it is happening, or how our characters are behaving.
