Small Folk

Question time!

Who do you think they are?

What do they look like?

Why do you think they like ‘staying out of the limelight’?

Why do they choose to live underground?

How many of them do you think live in this house?

What is it like inside?

Do you think there are other houses like this? Where are they?

Perfect picture!

Imagine who/what might live inside this house. Can you draw them?

Are there other houses like this? Can you draw one? You could perhaps draw what one of the rooms inside might look like!

Story starter!

They had lived there for as long as he could remember. Generations and generations passed, but very little changed. They kept themselves to themselves, hidden away from the world. Solitary, peaceful, different: they enjoyed staying out of the limelight. They enjoyed letting others be the centre of attention.

They were strange folk in a way, small and strange. However, they were also very, very interesting. These small folk were entirely unique, as you are about to find out…

Can you write a story about them?

Sentence challenge!

SPAG challenge

A preposition is a word that shows the relationship between one thing and another.

It may tell you where a thing is in relation to something else. E.g. The house was built under the ground.

It may tell you when something is in relation to another event. g. The ceiling would not stop leaking until the hole was fixed.

Can you find any prepositions in your writing? Can you write 3 sentences that contain prepositions?

Sick sentences!

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

There was a door. It led into a house. The house was underground. It was cosy inside.
