P5 scary openers

P5 have continued their work on writing scary stories and we focused on the opening paragraph this week.

We spoke about “showing not telling”, and ways that we could make a reader aware that a character is scared, or a setting is scary, without actually using the word scared or scary!

We were very impressed with the standard of writing – especially after we compared them to our “cold” writing!

What do you think of our work?
