Rise of the Machine

Rise of the Machine

Question time!

What kind of machine can see?

What do you think this machine is thinking?

How do you think this machine has been awoken?

If you could control this machine, what would you do with it?

Apart from being a machine, what else do you think this might be?

Perfect picture!

Can you invent The Eye’s enemy?

Draw/describe what The Eye’s enemy is like.

Story starter!

As the cogs began to turn once again, a flicker of light sparked from within.

Watching, waiting, anticipating its first move, the rise of the machine was imminent…

Sentence challenge!

A parenthesis is a word or a phrase put into a sentence to give it more information.

Sometimes a parenthesis is in italics, sometimes it is in (brackets), sometimes there is a dash – and sometimes it has ‘inverted commas’ around it.

Parentheses are used to:

Explain what a difficult word means.

Show someone’s thoughts to

add extra information to help the reader and/or emphasise a point.

Can you use brackets to add extra information?

E.g. Staring vehemently at the enemy ahead, The Eye (adjusting to its new surroundings) prepared a visual perimeter scan.

Sick sentences!

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

The Eye looked around. It was big and colourful. It was made out of metal.
