Fairytale ending

Fairytale ending

Question time!

Who is the girl in the picture?

Where has she come from?

What stories have been told in her village for centuries?

What do you think she hopes will be inside the house?

What will she actually find inside?

Why is she all alone?

What are the golden specks of light that appear at the front of the picture?

How has the girl found this place?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw what it is like inside the house? What does the girl see as she enters?

Story starter!

Timidly, she pushed back the branches and peered into the clearing. Sunshine drenched the ground as it poured through the canopy above.

She had been following the trail of clues for days, and she had finally reached her destination. Were the stories true? Was this really the place people in her village had talked about for centuries?

She hoped her own story would have a fairytale ending, but in the back of her mind a sickening thought arose – what if something more sinister waited ahead?

Sentence challenge!

Imagine you are standing on the edge of the clearing about to cross the field.

How do you feel?

How might you move towards the door?

Can you think of better verbs than walked?

I walked across the field towards to door.

Can you improve this sentence by adding a more powerful verb? Can you improve it in any other ways?

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?

The girl walked towards the house. She felt scared. She opened she door.
