The Alchemist

Question time!

Who is the person in the story starter?

What is Raven Cliff Crag?

What are the skills she has been honing for hundreds of years?

What else must she do before her creation is complete?

What is she creating?

What will happen when she has finished?

Think carefully about whether the character’s intentions are good or evil…

Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of the person who has concocted the contents of the jars? Think carefully about her nature and her appearance.

Story starter!

She had resided at Raven Cliff Crag for hundreds of years, perfecting her art, honing her skills.

Her concoctions bubbled and frothed in front of her; she let out a hearty laugh. “Not long now” she muttered under her breath. Her creation was almost complete…

Sentence challenge!

Can you think of different words/synonyms for ‘said’?

Make a list of them.

Can you make these sentences better in using some of your words?

“Nearly finished” said the witch under her breath.

“Nearly finished!” said the witch angrily.

“Nearly finished” said the witch to herself quietly.

Sick sentences!

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

The sky was grey and cloudy. She stood over the table looking at the jars. They contained stuff.
