Think about a character from a story that you have recently read, and then complete the attached character description.

Character Description



Today you will be writing the middle part of your story, we often think of this part of a story as the most exciting part.  When writing your story I would like you to try and end the middle section on a cliff hanger. This is when we leave the reader wondering what will happen next, one way we can do this is by ending this section with a question for the reader.  Have a read through mine below and then have a go at writing your own middle.

My middle

Frank the fantastical creature and Carly set off together towards the forest. It was quite dark and all they had was the light of the moon to help them see their way through the dark, over grown trees. The carefully creeped slowly into the heart of the forest, Carly knew she had last had the key when she had been picking beautiful flowers earlier that day. As they got to the centre though, nothing was as she had left it! The ground was torn up like a tornado had destroyed it. The trees branches were snapped off. Who could have done something so terrible? Carly began to cry, Frank wrapped his arm around her and suddenly the ground began to shake. Up from the ground a twisted arm appeared, attached to a gruesome body and face. Carly and Frank shook with fright, then they realised hanging around this monster’s neck hung the enchanted garden’s key. How could they get it back? Would they survive?
