During our tutoring sessions with our pupils, we encourage them to use their imaginations and create short stories, some of which we have shown examples of below.
It rustled. Confused. One noise.
A strange noise seemed to be vibrating against the walls and down the passage of my ears. A cold sturdy shiver was sent down my spine as I frantically turned. I seemed to be face to face with a sinister shadow. I tried to run yet by feet seemed to be glued to the floor.
As the shadow gradually walked forward, the blur was now the centre of my focus. A suspicious lady dressed in coal black attire, stood in front of me. I tried to say something but an eerie silence spluttered out instead. How had she got here? Why was she here? My body was shaking as I saw her running towards me. I screamed “Help!”, yet the words came out as a whisper. In my head they were screechingly loud. She had pushed me against the wall. It was totally dark.
What could it be? Was it a monster? Was it an earthquake? The noise got louder and louder, I could hear it, but could not see it. I was terrified. All of a sudden I heard a bang, and a cat appeared. "Mojo?” I said. "Katie?" Mojo replied.
Mojo was one of my toys; he must have somehow come to life. He was an honest, shy and friendly cat and he also loved to play. I kept yawning and I had butterflies in my stomach. "Are you ok?" Mojo asked. "I'm scared, I'd somehow woken up in this room!" I said.
Mojo and I had to work out our plan of escape.
I didn’t know what to feel, I felt confused and just didn’t know what was happening. Alice was acting normal again. She asked me if I was alright. I explained what had happened; that I hallucinated and saw different things, but Alice wasn’t listening. She started moving towards me, my heart missed a beat or two, she looked fierce. Suddenly I heard a voice; it commanded me to give him the bottle of water. I went to get it, it turned into sand in my hands. After seeing the astonishing bottle turning into sand, my hands turned blue.
“What’s happening?!” shouted Alice.
The voice chanted, “You’re stuck here forever ha ha ha!”
Alice and I just didn’t know what to do next. I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. I started to doze off into a deep sleep, my mind was blank. I was dreaming about a fantasy world, and then I heard a loud bang. I jumped in fear, Alice too.
The voice said “Look through the window!” A window appeared. Alice and I looked through the blurry window from the room; the room was moving.
“Oh my gosh!” screamed Alice “We’re flying in the air!”
The next thing I know, I heard marching, I started to sweat. Then all of a sudden, a
spotlight came on a doll. She started to sing nursery rhymes with a scary smile on her face; she was even moving her head side to side as she came closer. I was shocked as she stretched her hand out to me, the light was flickering on and off. Then it switched off completely. It turned on again and now the doll was right in front of me.
I screamed as loud as I could. But then I heard laughter coming from the corner of a room. I thought, this could not be real. Then someone opened the door and turned on the light; it was my friend Kamryn, she saw me amongst my dolls looking bewildered.
