Adventure Story Writing

Throughout this half term, we have enjoyed reading lots of different adventure stories and thinking about how the authors build a sense of danger and excitement for the reader. The children collected words and phrases and used images and video clips to inspire them to create their own stories. They then built a scene from their story in a shoebox, before telling and writing their stories.

Here are some exciting extracts from the finished adventure stories:

At first, he was petrified. He saw something move in the darkness. Jack knew there was something on Neptune. He crept towards it.

Just then, he heard a sudden noise.  But what was it? He heard crashing of water and bashing of thunder.  Billy was so scared he jumped out of his skin.  His heart leapt.

When he looked back, he saw a menacing, huge ship and a dark, fierce figure with a hood over its head.

His heart was pounding so much you could nearly see it jump out of his furry skin.  He thought his owner was burnt to a crisp.

She heard a sad scream that sounded as if something or someone needed help. She believed something was missing. Something that mattered to her. She couldn't forget the scream.

A hooded figure holding meat in one hand and a revolver in the other appeared. Roar froze. He crept slowly towards his bed. He thought if the figure caught him, he would be killed! Roar took a deep breath and darted at the enclosure.

All of a sudden there was a flash of light. When it was over, it seemed darker.
