Story starter!

Have you ever wondered what causes the waves in the ocean?

Sometimes in life, things are not as they seem.

Footsteps could be heard in the distance. Not careful, quiet footsteps, like those someone like you might make as you move about your living room. No. These footsteps were different: they shook the very earth with every colossal stride. He was coming…

Sentence challenge!

Can you describe the sounds that the giant’s footsteps might cause?

Can you make a list of different sounds?

Can you start a sentence with one of those sounds?

E.g. Thud! Thud! Thud! The enormous feet waded easily through the ocean.

Sick sentences!

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

Someone walked through the sea. They were big, and had big footsteps. They caused waves.
