Hi Year 6, yes its time for challenges two. Are you ready… here we go…
Look at the short story below and read it. I would like you to tell me the features and purpose of this story and who the audience is? Also what type of ending does it have? Think carefully, it is what we have been learning about this week.
A twig snapped somewhere across the icy street. Hannah’s back stiffened.
“What was that?” She whispered to Ashley, her breath coming out in misty puffs. Ashley’s pupils shrank down into specks.
“I don’t know.” She replied, her voice thin and wispy.
They both stood in utter silence for what felt like minutes. Only one dim streetlight shown over the road, creating a small beam of light in the pitch black night. The lightly falling snow was blown gently by the wind, and whistled through Ashley’s hair and froze her ears. Chimes clashed restlessly together somewhere in the distance.
Hannah reached for Ashley’s gloved hand, but she batted it away.
“Don’t be a wimp.” Ashley hissed. Another twig snapped, louder and sounding closer this time. Hannah whimpered.
Ashley’s eyes slowly shifted toward the streetlight. A dark shadow darted behind it. Ashley’s heart stopped. She turned to face Hannah.
“We have to get out of here,” she said staring at her with a crazed look in her eye, “Now.”
She began to take a step away from the street, but Hannah put a hand out to stop her.
“We can’t,” She insisted. Her breath was ice cold on Ashley’s face, “If we go, whoever it is out there is going to hear us. And they’re going to follow us.”
Ashley stared at Hannah with her big blue eyes. The light behind them flickered and they both shot their heads around. Within an instant, everything was utterly and completely black.
