Budding writers at Woodingdean

Do you remember when our class in Woodingdean drew their wonderful animal gladiators? As it was over Easter, we had lots of bunnies – very topical!

Gary loved them and set a new task for the class:

This week, I’d like you to write a short story about your new animal gladiator!

Your character is going to fight the champion of Rome! Will your character win or lose? Do they escape, or become champion themselves?
Here are some things to think about your character.

1) Is your character feeling happy, sad, confused or excited?

2) Why is your character feeling happy, sad etc?

3) Why did they decide to become a gladiator? Is it by choice, or were they forced, like Julius?

4) In your story, your character is fighting the champion of Rome. Who is the champion?

5) Is it a happy ending, or a sad ending?

I hope that sounds fun! I can’t wait to read your stories!

Speak again next week!

Gary

And Woodingdean got writing! They let their imaginations run wild and wrote some wonderful pieces about their gladiators, have a look below:

Hi Gary!

We really enjoyed the task this week and have produced some great stories. Nearly all the animals ended up being the champion and lots had chosen to be gladiators! There’s also a bit of nervous pooing happening… We have sent a small selection for you to read.

This week we have won Pickwick the Punctuality penguin after he went missing! He told us lots of new jokes. Here’s one…

Knock knock

Who’s there?

Broken pencil

Broken pencil who?

Oh never mind, it’s pointless!

Speak to you next week,

They were all so good, we posted them all! Fluffy unicorns and funny poos! Oh what next!

Till next time! x
