A ghostly figure in an underground lair: a KS1/KS2 literacy idea.
This is a stimulus for writing a ghost story in KS1 or KS2 English. It can be shown on an interactive whiteboard and used as a lesson starter. The camera tracks through a forest and zooms in on a dark cave. As the camera moves deeper inside, strange sounds echo from within. What is this place? What adventures could we have here? The clip should be of particular relevance to classes that are reading or writing ghost stories. It would also make a good example of how to create atmosphere in a story.
