08.07.20 - Writing Task

Hi Blackbirds and Pigeons,

Watch this short video called “Mega City”. It was made as a TV advert by a pet food company and tells the story of busker (street musician) Jack and his furry companion, Harry. We travel with the struggling pair as they try desperately to bring joy and happiness to their cold, dark world.

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

Afterwards, you have some writing choices:

  • Retell the story in your own words as a 3rd person narrative.  (He/They)


  • Retell the story in the 1st person either as Jack or his dog. (I, me)


  • Describe the city and the countryside using specific language to create a mood/atmosphere. 


  • Write a dual narrative both through the eyes of Jack and his dog.
