Year 6 Suspenseful Stories
Recently, Year 6 have been learning how to write suspenseful stories in their English lessons. In this unit the children have practised different techniques for creating atmosphere, building tension and describing the feelings of their characters. After learning and analysing our model text, the children drafted their own scary stories in their books. They then redrafted these stories on computers, using feedback from peers and teachers to improve on the original version. The following stories have all been chosen because of the progress that the children made during this unit.
