Narrative - Third Person
Keeping a diary is a fun way to learn English!

Narrative - Third Person

This quiz looks at third person narrative and works alongside the Narrative - First Person quiz. This task will teach KS1 children that instead of ‘I’ they can work in third person, through the voice of a narrator. This will not only expand on their growing knowledge of literacy and the English language, but will also aid their creative writing skills.

When you read a story, there are characters and there is also a narrator. The narrator tells you what is happening but you don’t know who they are or what they look like. Any stories with a narrator are called third person narrative. This means the story isn’t from one point of view but from many.
