Writing Activity 2 - Story Starters. Pick ONE of these story starters and use it to write your own story. 

Closer and closer it came, it was getting
bigger and bigger. Soon it filled the sky
above. Was the moon falling? 

  I heard the music as I entered 
  the room, but all that was there 
was a violin. It lay there on its 
back on the bare floorboards..

  "Help me! Help me!" came the
  call from behind the steel door. 

 

Writing Activity 3 - Frank and Jason and The Great Train Robbery 

 Click the picture to watch a short animated film called Ruckus. 

  Frank and Jason are 'Wanted'. but they are still carrying out daring robberies, 
  this time it seems it is the great train robbery. Will their greed be the end of 
  them? 

 

  After you've watched this short film, pretend you are a journalist and you are     writing a report about the robberies. Write a newspaper report telling the people of     the town all about the great train robbery. 

  You can write your newspaper report on a piece of paper or you can use a
  computer if you would like.
