WRITING CHALLENGES

CHALLENGE 1 - THE TREE DOOR

 

STORY STARTER

The creaky, old doors had not been opened for years. The beast had always lived inside, but nobody dared to visit. Noises that echoed from the gaps in the door had haunted those who heard them. Nobody knew what the narrow, mossy steps led to. Nobody knew what was lurking within.

One day, the heavy, wooden doors slowly began to open with a groan…

Can you continue the story of the mysterious door?

 

QUESTION TIME.

 

Who might live inside the tree?

What would the house look like? Who put the sign on the door?

What do the local people think about the beast living inside?

Is the lamp ever lit?

Does the beast have neighbours?

Does the beast live alone?

If you lived in a village nearby, would you approach the door and meet the beast?

What do you think the beast is like?

What does the saying ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ mean? Could this apply to the beast?

If you were the beast, would you want to go out and meet people or would you prefer to hide away?

 

BE CREATIVE

Draw and write a description of the beast.

Make it as interesting as you can.

 

 

 

 

WANT TO BE TOTALLY CREATIVE?

Use these images for inspiration for your own writing.

You could create a story, descriptive piece, a poem or even make a comic book.
