Question time!

Who is the girl in the picture?

Why is she dressed in this way?

In what way(s) have things gone wrong for her?

Who is on the flying ship?

Why is she feeling panic and despair? Why might these feelings be ‘overwhelming’?

What will the girl do next? Will the ship turn back?

Why has it left without her?

Perfect picture!

Think about who might be on the ship, and what they look like. Can you draw them?

Story starter!

“You can’t leave without me! Where are you going?” The words came out like a squeak; her throat felt tight as she struggled to fight back the tears that had begun to stain her pale cheeks.

Mud was now splattered up the front of her dress as she stumbled over the sodden ground. A feeling of overwhelming panic and despair filled her trembling body. How could it all end this way? How could things have gone so wrong?

Sentence challenge!

Can you find a question in the story starter? Can you use a series of questions in your writing? Remember to use a question mark.

E.g. Why have things turned out this way? Why have they left me behind?

Sick sentences!

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

Fog went in the sky. The ship went through the air. The girl walked through the field. She was wearing a dress.
