Class 4 Alien descriptions - January 2010
Class 4 are reading and writing Science Fiction stories as part of their Literacy work this half-term. We worked with a partner in the ICT suite, using descriptive language such as adjective and adverb phrases to create a word picture of an alien.
Here are some of our pieces of writing.
Crazy Alien by Izzy and Alex U
Captain James suddenly saw something in the indigo bushes. Cautiously he wandered towards the mysterious towering jungle ahead. JUST THEN a yellow spotted green alien jumped in front of the amazed James. The warty textured alien had a gun in its hand ready to shoot. Captain James shuddered while trying to say “I come in peace,” but the alien just stared and hobbled away on itsbony feet.
Captain Wrigley's Fear by Charlotte H and Ben H
Creeping cautiously out of the shiny flying saucer Caption Wrigley nervously stepped out. Caption Wrigley caught sight of a huge monster with six bulging eyes. After a tense few minutes we saw sharp knife claws. Caption Wrigley trembled with fear, the monster tried to talk but nothing came out. The monster gave them a bright smile. Caption Wrigley noticed he was friendly.
Caption Wrigley started to talk, ” Hello, we come in peace - don’t be afraid, do you understand? “ A few seconds later his feet began to move. His six round eyes glared at Caption Wrigley and he started to talk ”Do not be afraid, I will not hurt you. My space ship has crashed on this strange environment. I went out of control. Will you help me? “
Fight on Jubale by Jaime and Molly
Captain Jaime Johnson turned frantically across the green surface of the planet Jubale. A peachy-grey skinned alien sprinted across the planet like an Olympic runner, running round the track. Even though it was very blurry Johnson saw that the figure of the alien had eight tentacles coming out of the skinny, frightening alien.
Johnson asked “Do you speak English?” the figure shrugged his shoulders as a quick answer. He took that as a no, he did not talk in any language. Suddenly he jumped up aiming for Johnson but he carefully dodged the alien. He had curling feet with three toes as sharp as knives.
The alien's mouth was dribbling with venom that smelt like petrol. The alien tried jumping on Johnson again but missed by a millimetre.
They tried talking to him again and he replied with “How dare you come on my planet” the alien said. “I will get you for this Johnson”. Then the alien spat venom at me but luckily it hit his helmet so it didn't hurt him a tiny bit.
