4th July 11am Session 9 Blog Challenge

Welcome to the blog post challenge.

Below is an example of a blog post written by Pie.

Your challenge is to write your own version using the sentences you have come up with in the session. Go back and look through the Padlets to explore other ideas too.

Breaking News – Dragons have been spotted in Wakefield

This is the 6 o’clock news. The main headline today is that astonishingly dragons have been sighted in Wakefield!

There have been reports that they are burning dustbins with their ferocious flames. Residents have described them as “overgrown lizards with wings.” One farmer said it had “burnt all his crops!”

The police are asking anyone who has seen these terrifying yet magnificent creatures to get in touch with them immediately.

The fire brigade say that they don’t feel they have enough fire-fighters to put these fires out. “We are sad to report we have yet to contain the fires of Wakefield Cathedral.”

Tune in later for further updates.

Breaking News – Giant Emergency

We are interrupting this programme to bring you breaking news. Giants have been sighted near parliament. Police have cordoned off the area but several giants have tried to walk across the River Thames. Helicopters have been attempting to stop the giants by dropping nets on them but the giants seem impossible to capture. An eyewitness told the news, “I never thought that I’d see the day when giants walked the streets of London. It’s a disgrace and they should be sent back to wherever they came from. They’ve been very naughty.”
