Question time!

What has happened for the girl to be in the cage?

Why are the ravens circling her?

Why is there a cage there?

What would happen if birds had the same brain capacity as humans?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw another human being held captive by a different animal? Would there be a different cage? Would there be a different surrounding? Would the mood of the human change because of the animal that is keeping them prisoner?

Story starter!

The heavy door of the cage swung shut and the iron bars echoed fiercely around. Menacing ravens circled around, their eyes transfixed on the trapped prisoner. How did she end up in this position?

There was nobody around to help her. Barren land stretched as far as the eye could see. If she was to escape, she had to do it herself. But how? Did she wait? Did she run? What would happen to her if she did escape from the cage?

Sentence challenge!

Can you use inverted commas within this sentence to show what the girl was saying?

The girl screamed wildly at the birds as she opened the cage door.

Now write one of your own sentences including inverted commas. Try describing how she said this in an interesting way.

e.g. The girl nervously looked towards the raven and screamed “You must let me go, I have done nothing wrong!” as tears rolled down her pale cheeks.

Sick sentences!

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

Birds flew around the big cage. The girl opened the cage door. It was a cloudy day.
