Surreal Dream

Question time!

Have you ever had a dream that has felt incredibly realistic?

Have you ever had a dream about something that has come true?

If you could design the perfect dream what would it be like?

Why do you think you only remember some of the dreams you have and not all of them?

What do you think our brains do when we are sleeping?

Perfect picture!

Imagine either your perfect dream, or your worst nightmare. Draw or describe what you have imagined.

Story starter!

Am I asleep, or am I dreaming?

This was the question that rang out in her head.

She looked down at her hands. Then her feet. Then her clothes. Why was she so small?

Amy had gone to bed that night as a 13-year-old girl, yet in her dream she was tiny again. She had not worn these clothes since she was 2 years old! What was going on?

She had been to this place before, she was certain. It all seemed familiar. Carrying the metal lantern in her fingertips, she waddled slowly through the night, not being able to see further than a few feet in front of her due to the thick wisps of fog that blanketed her vision.

Feeling the warm breeze caress her face, Amy inhaled. The air smelled damp, like it had just finished raining, but she couldn’t remember it having done so. Lanterns, as big as post boxes, swayed in the wind, shedding a feeble, hazy glow across the never-ending blackness.

She shivered. Something was wrong. Surely dreams couldn’t feel this real?

Sentence challenge!

Fronted adverbials

A fronted adverbial goes at the beginning of a sentence.

It describes the verb in the sentence.

It describes where, when or how.

E.g. During the day, she had felt fine.

After sunset, dreams become reality.

Can you try to use one today?

Sick sentences!

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

The girl walked through the fog. Lanterns blew in the wind.
