Brilliant Writing!!!

Thank you to all the children who have been busy at home.  I have already been sent some lovely pieces of work that I have really enjoyed looking at.  Here are a few paragraphs from one of the stories I have been sent.  Can you 'magpie' some of the ideas and vocabulary for your own story?

 

The snow egg

 

One freezing day in the snowy barbaric archipelago, a lonely Viking boy named Scribblur was
walking back home over a mountain from a long days work of fishing, when he noticed
something. Along the field of white glistening snow there was a thing that caught his eye, an
egg. A blue purple speckled egg. It was clearly not meant to be there, because it stuck out like
a sore thumb! He had no choice so he heaved the huge egg over his shoulders and carried on
home . So no one would see it, Scribbler emptied all the fish out of the crate he was holding and
stuffed the egg in instead. His legs aching beneath the huge crate Scribblur stumbled home to
his grandfather's cosy cabin near the sea to ask him what he'd found.

 

The hatching portal


Scribblur stared at the egg that was now beginning to crack. For a split second Scribblur wished
he'd left the egg alone until... BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM the egg exploded in a flurry of purple
sparks and a portal appeared that looked like lightning itself. Suddenly, Scribblur and the baby
dragon were sucked into the lightning like portal. A strange rushing sensation came over
Scribblur but the dragon seemed to not notice .
A scene of beautiful cliffs and calm waters met Scribblur's eyes, then everything went
completely black the last thing he heard were multiple blood- curdling dragon growls...
