    This short dramatic clip, from Lesson Starters, can be shown on an interactive whiteboard and used as a helpful stimulus for writing an adventure story in KS1/2 English.

    In the clip, a woman is tracking footprints across a sandy shoreline and calling out across the deserted beach. Another figure is signaling to her from high up in the cliffs. Who are these people? How did they reach this deserted place? What will happen next?

    This is particularly relevant to teachers who are focusing on story setting, plot or the adventure story genre.

We believe a good thing should be shared
