Night Quest

Night Quest

Question time!

Do you think these people are escaping something or leaving to find something?

If the sky had feelings, what would they be?

If the sky, water and mountains could speak, what would they say to each other?

What creatures live in the water?

Would you like to live here? If you did, how would your life be different?

Perfect picture!

What do you think is beyond/behind the mountains? Draw or describe what you have imagined.

Story starter!

Pushing themselves off the bank, the men glanced around them. The coast was clear.

The mountains rose around them like dragons teeth, reminding them of the danger facing them. Their quest was of vital importance, but success was extremely unlikely. Saying a silent prayer to the gods of the lake, they snuffed out their lights and drifted off across the tranquil water.

The mission lay on the edge of a knife: one small mistake would be fatal…

Sentence challenge!

Can you include a complex sentence containing a main clause and a subordinate clause?

Can you separate the clauses using a comma?

Can you use one of the following conjunctions to link your clauses: but, or, yet, so?

e.g. This had once been a happy place, but everything had changed.

Sick sentences!

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

The light shone on the water. The boat went out across the lake.
