1 WALT identify the features of a adventure story Why? So we can use them to write our own adventure story to entertain others

2 Fire Island Adventure Run, theyre coming after us, yelled Bobby as he rushed through the crowded village square. (Hook…hooks in the reader…makes them want to read on) Bobby was a small, nine year old boy who had rosy red cheeks and a mop of curls that hung down over his sticky out ears. He always had a cheeky grin and was known as a local petty thief. He was poor and lived on the streets of Derk. (Character description…uses adjectives and nouns to paint a picture of the main character in the readers head.)

3 Derk was a small village that was surrounded by farms and cliffs on the coast of Iguana. Smoke often blew over it from the nearby Fire Islands and the smell of salt filled the air. The farms were poor and the ground didnt grow much. The sound of squawking seagulls fighting over the few shellfish that clung the nearby rocks was a sound the villagers were use to. (Setting description… uses adjectives, nouns, verbs and 5 senses to paint a picture in the readers head of where to story happens.)

4 Huffing and puffing Bobby leant up against a door in a side alley leading off the village square. Who are you hiding from? whispered a nearby voice. Whos there? demanded Bobby (a little frightened). Its me Jill, said the mystery voice. Bobby sighed with relief as Jill stepped out into the light. Jill was close in age to Bobby and another orphan he often worked with stealing vegetables from the local famers. She was as thin as a weed and had long, brown dirty hair that hung over her face. She wore ragged trousers tied at the waist by an old piece of rope. (Introduction of 2 nd character – described using simile, adjectives, nouns, dialogue)

5 I was down by the wharves when I saw dragons flying towards the docks breathing fire, so I just ran, replied Bobby breathlessly. (Problem... with risk and physical danger) Oh no, sobbed Jill. I am afraid they are angry because I stole one of their golden eggs. Oh dear said Bobby We will never be able able to cross the sea to return it as they will burn us alive boat and all. We will need some help to fix this! (Complication…with more risk and physical danger)

6 The children walked for hours until they came to a cave on the edge of town. The silence inside the cave was punctured by a soft snoring sound. Excuse me, whispered Bobby in a timid voice. Zzzzzz echoed back at him from the depths of the cave. Bobby and Jill crept slowly forward towards the large snoring shape they could seem in the gloom of the cave. The air around them was freezing and damp the further they went inside the old, mossy cave. In the dim light they could see a large scaly dragon surrounded by leaves and gently poked its foot. (exciting undertaking …task to find help…change of setting described and new character described)

7 Humpf….whose there? roared a loud booming voice. Its me Bobby. Remember the boy who rescued you from the farmers trap 2 winters ago. Why, yes…I remember you replied the now wide awake dragon. Are you here for the reward I promised you. Well no, not exactly replied Bobby. We need your help. After explaining why the Fire Island dragons were now bombarding the village with fiery blasts the children asked if the old dragon would help them sneak onto the Fire Islands and return the stolen golden egg back into the nest Jill stole it from. If I do this then my debt will be repaid to you boy snorted the elderly dragon. (Solution suggested by using dialogue and 3 rd person narration)

8 The next day as the sun slowly rose into the blue cloudless sky and not a breathe of wind could be felt Bobby and Jill clambered up onto the back of the ancient dragon. Hold on tight roared the dragon. Jill tightly gripped the golden egg to her chest. Whoosh…up into the air they climbed. They climbed so high in the air they were above the flight path of the Fire Island dragons and were able to cross the sea unseen by their angry neighbours. (Solution for complication)

9 They landed softly on the hot rocks atop the highest mountain in the middle of the Fire Islands. Jill snuck across the large boulders carefully balancing the large golden egg in one hand. She finally made it to the large empty nest surrounded by broken bits of pirate boats and old treasure chests. She gently popped the golden egg safely back where it belonged. (Solution for problem) Quick, lets go she puffed as she leapt back on the dragons scaly, leathery back. They all arrived safely back on Derk. Phew, that was scary, exclaimed Bobby. I hope youve learnt your lesson Jill about who not to steal from. Yip she smiled. I sure have – never steal from someone who can breathe fire, or fly! (Ending …story concluded)
