We have started the term off by looking at Narratives. Our first focus was Sizzling Starts. We had a go at writing a number of story starters using the techniques of: Dialogue, Asking a Question, Describing Something Unusual, A Dramatic Exclamation or Sound and Introduce Something Intriguing.

Here are some of our examples based on the images

Describing something unusual:

The gollum’s were made from very hard wooden termites.

As the gollum saw the knight gallop towards it he thought, what is this hideous creation of nature.

As he scanned the horizon he a flying boats and wondered what they were carrying.

Group 8’s sentences: As the samurai galloped up to the cliff he thought, “ what is the weird word with unusual creations?”.

“Where’s me Nan when you need here?” I screamed to my horses, I had enough. Finally the G.O.G Snake, his rock mouth opened he said, “ We come in pieces!” as a smile come to his face! “ Dat is da first time I said it right in my practises!”

Introduce Something Interesting:

As the man approached the end of the cliff, his eyes met with the Gollum, he knew war had begun!

When the stone monster stomped out, the samurai was struck with an overwhelming amount of fear.

Suddenly, he decided he had no fear at all, he feels confident, he jumped off the cliff and went “WEEEEEEE!!” And tried to land on a flying ship but he missed and his horse saved the day.

YAY!

We got a helicopter, drop bomb on the gollum, one of them died there’s still some  more to go.

As the gollum stated to advance on the knight the knight wasn’t aware, because he got distracted by a small flying bug that landed on his nose.

ASKING A QUESTION!!!!

“Is this the end of the world?” The samurai whispered to himself in fear.

‘“WHAT IS GOING ON, DO YOU WANNA DO A RAP BATTLE WHILE EATING A WRAP? ”DO YOU KNOW ENGLISH?”

“ARE WE MEANT TO DEFEAT YOU PATHETIC LITTLE HUMANS?” questioned the gollums.

“SHOULD WE RUN, OR FIGHT HORSY?” sir Jeffery whispered nervously,to his horse.

“Ha Ha Ha, did my commander really order me to dominate you tiny termites.? laughed the knight.

SIZZLING DIALOGUES

“Everybody get into your positions so we can catch the creature with the pointy stick (jousting stick)” Ordered the Knight.

‘’ What are you doing on our land!?‘’ demanded the samurai.

Dramatic Exclamation or Sound:

The horse battled onward for its rider and defeated these giant nightmares, in the flesh all he had to say was, “What is the time?”

“Oh no! I’m going to die. My beautiful face it’ll be ruined! Sir Jeffery screamed.

“Oh no! I’m never going to see the snow!” He screamed as the golem attacked.

As I came to the end of the cliff I realised I was looking into the eyes of  a walking nightmare.

“Oh no! Please surrender. You’re too fierce for us!”
