Writing to entertain: Horror Stories
Year 6 recently studied Roald Dahl’s short story: The Landlady. A story filled with mystery, intrigue and suspense. The story ends on a cliff-hanger and the reader is left wondering what will or could happen next. In Year 6 we considered how the story might continue. Planning out our ideas we got busy writing the sequel to this tale.
Please look out for the following features in our writing:
- Structure: start, middle and conclusion;
- Short sentences to build suspense;
- Demanding vocabulary;
- Figurative language features.
