5 sentence challenge

The 5 sentence challenge is an international creative writing challenge.  It is the "baby brother" of the 100 word challenge that Mrs Warner's class have been entering.  Every fortnight a different stimulus is set on the 100 word challenge website to get the children thinking creatively. 
If you want to learn more about the 5 sentence challenge or have a look at examples from other schools click on the 5 sentence challenge icon on the right of this page.

Last week in class we worked together to come up with these sentences based around the words marvellous, castle, pink, flew.

The marvellous dragon set the castle on fire with his hot smoky breath.
The terrifying dragon flew to the castle to rescue the beautiful pink princess.
The dragon flew the princess to the pink castle.
The big nasty dragon flew away with the gorgeous princess.
They landed on a cloud that makes great roaring bangs.

This week we are using a picture set by the 5 sentence challenge team as our talk homework ready for big write on Friday.  This time the children will work independently to create their sentences.  Look out for them on the blog at the weekend.

What could you write about this picture????
