5 minute thought...

Can you remember some of the ways that an author can build suspense and tension in a piece of writing? See if you can say them aloud without reading your toolkit...GO!


Task 1- Suspense planning

Below are 4 picture prompts that could be used to write a suspense story. I would like you to write a short plan for each picture, thinking about how you could use it to create a feeling of danger and tension. Write your ideas around the picture or as a mind map and you must use your toolkit to help you.

REMEMBER you are only writing the plan for each picture, you are not actually writing the suspense part of the story.
