New York is falling!

New York is falling!

Question time!

Why had the radio stopped working?

Why hasn’t Jim heard any words for three days?

What has happened in New York?

How do you know the picture is New York?

How do you think Jim is feeling?

What will he do next?

What would you do in Jim’s position?

Has this disaster struck in just this city, or are others affected?

Perfect picture!

One of the first things Jim will do next is to find supplies to help him survive. Can you draw 10 different things that Jim might look to obtain to help him survive?

For example, he might try to find tins of food and bottled water.

Story starter!

New York is falling!

The words rang in Jim’s head. They were the last words to crackle out of the radio before it stopped broadcasting. That had been three days ago. Jim had not heard any words since then…

Sentence challenge!

Can you use a colon to start a list?


Jim was hit by a series of strong emotions: shock, panic, despair and fear. He didn’t know what to do next…

Sick sentences!

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

Jim stood in the city. It was messy. It was very quiet. Jim felt scared.
