The Road Ahead

The Road Ahead

Question time!

What does it mean by 'Jake could not believe his eyes'?

Where do you think Jake and his dad were going?

What might have caused the road to behave in this way? Was it alive?

What do you think Jake and his dad should do next?

Why was there nobody else on the road?

Where do you think the road leads?

Perfect picture!

Imagine if the road outside your school or home started to do this! Can you draw what it might look like?

Story starter!

It had been a normal journey so far, but things were about to change.

For miles and miles, the only sound that filled Jake's ears had been the comforting hum of the car engine as they drove along the highway. So comforting in fact that he had dozed off, only to be awoken by the sudden jolt as his dad slammed the brakes on the car.

Jake could not believe his eyes...

Story Writing Genre Tick-list KS2

Sentence challenge!

Can you use your senses to describe what Jake has experienced?

What can he hear, see, smell, taste and feel.

Try to use a range of adjectives, adverbs and similes. For example...

The long, never-ending road roared like a jumbo jet taking off as it writhed about angrily in the air like a rattlesnake striking its prey.

Sick sentences!

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

The road was long. It was straight. It started to move. It was scary.
