"The walked to the house at the end of the street."
I strode confidently to the crumbly, black ruins of the cottage at the end of the silent, isolated street while thunder coughed and lightning slit the sky’s throat.

Fearfully, I walked slowly towards the deserted, crumbled old house at the end of the dark cobbled alleyway. The smashed up glass stuck out as if it was trying to push me away.

I slowly strutted down the street as I saw the gloomy old abandoned house.
Fearfully listening to the doors creak, I walked down the to the end of the road and felt a slither down my spine.

I strolled to the vintage house at the end of the gloomy, abandoned road. I felt the breeze push it’s way through my hair.
I slowly crept nervously towards the old broken down deserted house at the end of the spooky cold street

I scampered into a mansion. I was anxious to get to the living room. I gleamed at the sign that said “money room 2 metres ahead. Take a left and you’re there.” I was trapped drowning in money.
I glanced at the spooky rotten old house. I decided to go over and check it out. I bowled over to the forgotten mansion then I woke up from my nightmare.

I slugged my way to my drenched but colourful mansion.
By William and Oscar
The golden sunshine dancing on my face and the balmy breeze rustling in my hair, I joyfully strolled to the mansion at number 83 located at the end of the brick lane.

It was lots of fun because the whole year 5/6 team worked together in the hall.
We worked in groups of four and had a limited time-frame in which to come up with an outfit to walk down the catwalk. The teachers also limited the materials we could use so we had to get creative. Our outfits also had to show examples of weaving, sewing and folding.
