									               Prologue
                    PROLOGUE
       Two households, both alike in dignity,
      In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
    From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
   Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
    From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
     A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;
     Whole misadventured piteous overthrows
    Do with their death bury their parents' strife.
  The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,
    And the continuance of their parents' rage,
Which, but their children's end, nought could remove,
     Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;
     The which if you with patient ears attend,
 What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
                Prologues
 Prologues   are the beginnings of stories
  and plays.
 They help us to understand what has
  happened before so that we read the story
  from its first point knowing how the
  characters got there.
 Look at Shakespeare’s opening for Romeo
  and Juliet: he tells the whole story in
  fourteen lines.
Your Prologue
          You should introduce the
           situation – rumours about
           Kraznir’s attack.
          How the team was
           chosen, by you or the
           Queen?
          Introduce yourself
          Describe yourself and
           explain why you have
           been chosen as the
           leader.
          Describe the members of
           the team
            In the dungeon…

 Using adjectives and
  your five senses,
  describe what it is like
  for you in the
  dungeon…
 Is it dark, scary,
  echoic? Can you feel
  damp walls? Can you
  taste the fear
  creeping in your
  mouth?
                  Task:
 Write  two paragraphs, with four/five lines
  in each
 Describe what the dungeon is like…using
  your five senses
 Tell me what you and your army members
  will be doing in the dungeon
 Mention each of your characters as well as
  your self. Include their personalities.
Example of an opening paragraph
 The dungeon was cold and damp, like a
 freezer. They heard a hundred thousand
 rats scuttling underneath their feet. They
 walked along the path, stumbling on the
 cobbles and fell against the slimy green
 walls.
The Escape
        You have your maps in front of
         you.
        You need to decide your best
         route of escape: choose
         carefully as one wrong move
         could spell disaster.
        You have a heavy wooden box
         to carry. How to carry it is your
         choice and your command.
        You may consult others but
         remember, you are the leader
         and ultimate responsibility is
         yours.
The Escape
      Remember, you have
       a long way to go –
       you will need food.
      As part of your
       escape plan choose a
       route out of the castle
       that will allow you to
       steal some food.
              Leaving Castle Krill
   It is important that you
    carefully record your
    escape from this point.
    Should you fail, others
    will use your journal for
    another attempt.
   Make sure you include
    details and diagrams,
    Remember Slinsil is
    counting on you
                      Adverbs
 Anadverb describes a verb: it describes
 how the verb behaves. For example:

 ‘he   ran slowly’

 Slowlyis our adverb because it is telling
 us how the verb moved, ‘he ran slowly’,
 the boy was not running quick, he was
 slow.
                    Adverbs
   Pick the adverb from the following sentences:

 The girl smiled nervously when her mum
  questioned her.
 The boy grinned happily after he was given a
  present.
 The light shone feebly into the room.
 Sally laughed heartily with her friends.


 So, to recap, we use adverbs:
 to say how something happens
  'The family walked (how?) quickly.'
               Adverbs
 Now change these two sentences, putting
 in adverbs to make them more exciting:

 The boys walked on the beach to get an
 ice-cream.

 Sarahscreamed when she saw the puppy
 devouring his food.
         Read this passage…
 Harry looked nothing like the rest of his family.
  Uncle Vernon was large and neckless, with an
  enormous black moustache; Aunt Petuina was
  horse-faced and bony; Dudley was blonde, pink
  and porky. Harry, on the other hand, was small
  and skinny, with brilliant green eyes and jet
  black hair that was always untidy.
 At the age of one, Harry had survived a curse
  from the greatest dark sorcerer of all time, Lord
  Voldermort. His parents had died in
  Voldermort’s attack, but Harry had escaped with
  his lightning scar, and nobody knew why.
                   Noun Phrases
   A noun phrase is the subject of a sentence that has a
    noun or a pronoun in it. It can exist on its own or can
    have a verb phrase following it.

   A pronoun is a small word that can be used instead of a
    noun (a person, place or thing) when it is already clear
    who or what you are talking about.

   John has broken his leg. He’ll be in hospital for a week.
    He will be late for school every day. red= pronoun.

   Eg: The dog      = noun phrase
   The big dog      = noun phrase
   The big dog      ran for the bone.
   Noun phrase / verb phrase.

   Therefore, a noun phrase precedes a verb phrase.
                     Day Two
 You have escaped from
  the castle.
 You are high up in the
  mountains with only the
  clouds for company.
 You hear noises: they get
  louder.
 Krill has sent some of his
  followers to find you
 Task: Using adverbs, tell
  me how you and your
  army escape the strange
  animals
Day Two
     It is the followers of Krill.
     He has sent Giant
      Spiders, Wargs or Orcs.
     Decide how you are
      going to defeat them.
     Do all of your company
      survive?
     Remember, this may be
      the only way for your
      army to defeat Krill.
     Target: make writing
      exciting by using adverbs.
   Put into order…1 – 3 (1 = most
              important)
 Food  and water is the most important thing
  required to survive.
 Warmth is the most important thing
  required to survive.
 Social interaction is the most important
  thing required to survive.

 Explain   your answer.
                Day Three
 At last you have left
  the mountains and
  reached the River
  Glin.
 The river flows fast
  and is very deep: you
  cannot swim across.
 Luckily you have
  found a small boat.
Day Three : the River Crossing
   You have to work out the
    shortest number of trips
    to ferry the whole party
    and its luggage across.
   Don’t forget you need two
    people to cross the river –
    the boat cannot row and
    steer itself.
   Krill has put a spell on
    you and your
    companions- magic will
    not work near water…
Opening Paragraph: Day Three
 They staggered towards the muddy, wet,
 soggy bank. As they gazed at the
 ferocious river, they all flopped down on
 the grassy patch. Littlejohn shivered as the
 gust of wind blew at him but Touchfire
 smiled exhaustedly as he saw a boat in
 the distance. Daughty groaned as they
 dragged themselves towards it.
                The Journal
 Now it is more
  important than ever to
  keep your journal.
 This horrific event
  must never threaten
  anyone else and you
  hold the key for future
  safety.
                        Day Four
   You have crossed the
    river and reached the
    stony desert.
   You are all very tired
   You have not eaten for
    nearly six hours
   It is beginning to get dark
   You have decided to
    make camp in a rocky
    place.
THE DISASTER
         Just as you start to put
          you plan into action
          something terrible
          happens:
         You look round and find
          yourselves face to face
          with a terrible creature!
         It is nearly dark and at
          first you cannot see
          whether it is a Dragon,
          or a Margatroth or a
          Balrog.
                          All of them
   The dragon is 16 metres long and like most dragons , breathes
    flame. It can kill by burning pr crunching its victims in its jaws, The
    wizard can sometimes can calm it. It can be killed by a warrior’s
    sword – if he can get close enough.
   The Margatroth is a huge creature with two heads one at each end.
    It has fierce teeth and six legs. It is very dangerous to all living
    things except hobbits. They are two small for the Margatroth to see
    easily. I t can only be killed by cutting off one of its two heads.
   The Balrog’s body is made of fire. It can glow dully or
    flame brilliantly. The only weapon you use against it is
    water. The only water you is a small supply of drinking
    water, and you are in the middle of a desert, There is
    one chink of hope, the Balrog only moves quite slowly,
  Defeating the Dragon (animal of
              choice)
 The   army were walking miles without food.
 If it wasn’t bad enough, the army heard a
 shriek. Touchfire fainted from fatigue.
 Daughty groaned as he knew he had
 another thing to carry. Then they saw a
 flare of fire coming from where they heard
 the scream: a dragon took off into the air/
 a brilliant golden flame burst in front of
 them! A dragon!
                       Day Four
                     The monsters
   The dragon is 16 metres
    long and like most
    dragons , breathes flame.

        creature with two heads
        one at each end. It has
        fierce teeth and six legs.

   Linking between paragraphs
 Inpairs, find ways to link the words ‘lion’
  and ‘bus.’

 What   does it mean to link paragraphs?

 Today, our focus is going to link each of
  our paragraphs and also, each of our
  chapters.
Day Five
       At last you have reached
        the Forest of Haag.You
        have to find your way
        through this thick and
        dangerous forest. On the
        other side is the river Slin
        and freedom. The forest
        is the home of the evil
        magician, Nehemath. If
        any one passes through
        the forest he becomes
        very angry and tries to
        stop them
                      Day Five
In addition, you have a
   number of problems.
1.You have lost all your food
   and are all becoming
   weaker.
2.The hobbit is now so weak
   he has to be carried.
3.You may also have lost
   your water on day four
   (the Balrog).
4, The wizard's spells do not
   work in the forest
Day Five
       Decide what nasty
        scheme Nehemath has to
        stop you passing through
        the wood.
       Describe how your party
        tries to survive.
       Decide what happens in
        the end
       Four paragraphs, with
        only 5 lines per
        paragraph.
             Forest of Haag
 Up ahead, we could see a huge green forest. It
  was dark and gloomy: we could hear our
  footsteps crackling on the ground. As we were
  walking through the forest, we realised this was
  Nehemath’s terrority because we could hear his
  evil laughter. But, we realised he wasn’t
  laughing; he was chanting a spell! (linking
  sentence)
 Highlight your next linking sentence (in margin,
  explain to me how it is linking both paragraphs)
                           The End
   And now, the end is near;
    And so I face the final
    curtain.
    My friend, I’ll say it clear,
    I’ll state my case, of
    which I’m certain.
    I’ve lived a life thats full.
    I’ve traveled each and
    evry highway;
    And more, much more
    than this,
    I did it my way.
                   EPILOGUE
   What happened next?

   Did you stay in Slinsil,
    marry the queen and
    live happily ever
    after?

 Did Krill take out a
  contract on you?
 …………….?
              12 months later…
   When we got back to our country, everyone went
    their separate ways: Touchfire married the Queen
    because she was very proud of him; Daughty was
    Knighted; Littlejohn became Head of Slimsil Army;
    Athor sadly passed away two weeks after the war
    ended. His funeral was the biggest event in Slimsil
    history. What about me? I travelled across three
    continents and eventually settled in Arnia, Northern
    Hemisphere.
   As for Slimsil and Kraznir, they are both at peace
    now after Krill was stabbed in the heart by Athor.
    Everyone is living a very happy and prosperous life.
