The Threat

The Threat

Question time!

What do you think is inside the ships?

Where do you think they have come from?

Do you believe in aliens?

How would the people of Earth react to an alien landing?

Why have the ships landed in the city?

What city do you think it is?

Who are the characters in the story?

Perfect picture!

Imagine you can see the entire spaceship. Draw or describe what you have imagined it to look like.

Story starter!

“Excuse me, may I see some form of identification please?” The agent sounded extremely serious, and I could see as I approached him the beads of sweat that had formed on his shaved head: a sure sign of the stress caused by the recent developments. After all, it wasn’t everyday that aliens landed!

I did as I was told, flashing my badge in front of his eyes. He immediately stood to attention when he saw my name.

“I’m sorry,” he asked, “but we have been asking everyone for I.D. ever since it happened.” His tone sounded apologetic. “We’ve completely locked down the entire area. We’ve been waiting for you. What are your orders?”

The reality struck me of why I was here: to investigate this mysterious event. My eyes took in the scene around me. It was like nothing I had ever seen before…

Can you continue the story of the mysterious landings?

Sentence challenge!

Insert the inverted commas into the sentence below.

Don’t come any closer, said the FBI agent, this area is dangerous.

Can you use speech in your writing today? Remember to use inverted commas.

Sick sentences!

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

In front of me was a big ship. A big light shone down onto the road and buildings.
