As Halloween approaches, many classes are involved in spooky drama and scarey story writing. The primary fives have been writing Monster Stories, developing their ability to continue in the style of a writer, using good descriptions, continuing with characters and setting the scene. They will share their ideas here.
The story so far……The big creature staggered towards us, grunting with each heavy step. I pressed myself against the cave wall, wishing the cave would swallow us up. Anything would be better than having him swallow us!
The monster kept coming. His footsteps shook the floor of the cave.
Boom, boom, boom.
We huddled together on the floor. We tried to make ourselves as small as we could. He stopped inches in front of us and roared again. A deafening roar……
You`re in for a big surprise…. All primary 5 pupils had a wonderful time in the Whisky bottle wood today with their storyteller Daniel, who brought to life tales of John Muir`s travels in the wilderness, his encounters with bears and snakes and adventures with his faithful dog Stickeen. The scene was certainly set in our woodland clearing with the sounds of leaves falling, birds, wind and nature all around us.
We had an important and interesting visit today from the coastguard as part of our coastlines project. We have been learning about seashore safety and it was really important to hear about the important job they do and how we can keep ourselves safe at the beach. We really enjoyed it and would like to say a big thank you.
