Fiction writing - story openers
This unit focuses on the opening of a suspense story. The children read the opening then identify the different forms of figurative speech that have been used to add effect. Personification, metaphors and similes are explained and examples shown. Children then go on to write the opening of their own suspense story using a picture of haunted house as stimulus.
