Year 5, your writing has been impressing me so much it needs to be displayed on the blog! Your homework for this week is to write a story about the picture below. It’s mysterious and magical, so I thought you’d like it!
On a quiet day, you can sometimes hear them. Every now and then, there’s be a tapping or a scraping or a rustling from behind the door. Occasionally (if you’re patient enough to sit for the whole day and watch), movement can be glimpsed through the dark windows. Once, just once, the faint sound of whispering in hushed tones was heard.
The boy had spent his entire summer holidays wishing for something to emerge from the mysterious door. He had spent yet another sunny morning hiding in the tall grass at the bottom of his garden just staring at the door, hoping to catch a glimpse of something or someone extraordinary.
The moment he had been waiting for had finally arrived…The door began to slowly creak open…
As always, you should challenge yourself with your writing. (Think about what you’d put on a Bingo sheet!)
- Include parenthesis
- Include relative clauses
- Include fronted adverbials
- Include ambitious vocabulary
- Include dialogue (inner dialogue too perhaps)
- Include a variety of Alan Peat sentences.
Good luck Year 5, I’m excited to read your stories!
