An engaging whiteboard animation video asking 'What is suspense'; explaining 4 techniques used in suspenseful writing and a final task to create a suspenseful paragraph from a picture using the four techniques. Ideal for upper KS2/lower KS3 English/writing.
Preview images of the video provided so you can see what a 'whiteboard animation' looks like as a preview.
The video can be paused at certain points whilst students discuss or complete a task.
Used this resource this morning for a class with additional needs to introduce the idea of 'suspense'. It was a perfect introduction to some 'suspenseful' writing techniques and a springboard for the rest of the writing topic. Would highly recommend.
