Matthew made an excellent attempt to use short sentences to help build the suspense and some good ‘ly’ words to open his sentences. A fantastic piece of writing Matthew keep up the good work!

    You created a sense of panic and urgency in your writing by using short snappy sentences. I also like how Ben was too busy to be scared when all the action was happening but it all caught up with him when he got home. I think this is very realistic and would have been how I reacted too!

    Well done!

    Wow! That was scary, could you re-write this piece with an alternative ending? Maybe the witch doesn’t have to die? Well done!

    Matthew you’ve succeeded in frightening me! How clever of you to combine adverb openers, short sentences and empty words to build the suspense. I really enjoyed reading your work.

    Matthew, this piece of writing shows you have a great imagination. As a reader I can picture the house and the face of the witch clearly because of your descriptions. Keep it up!

    I really love the way you started your story with an adverb – what a great opening sentence! It was also clever that you used an empty word to build suspense – ‘something’ grabbed him. It made me very nervous for poor Ben!

    You have used short sentences to create suspense Matthew – this is a good technique to use! I think I would have been just as scared as Ben if a witch threw me on the sofa! Also, I think she needs to visit the dentist! Perhaps her teeth are mouldy from all the children she has been eating?! Well done Matthew.
