Suspense writing: Robin Hood


For the start of the new year, 5VW have been focusing on building suspense in their writing with specific links to the infamous outlaw, Robin Hood!

We have looked at lots of ways to build suspense in our writing and keeping a reader’s interest with varied sentence structures, ellipsis and the all-important cliff-hanger! 5VW have created some fantastic pieces of writing involving Robin and his band of Merry Men on a rescue mission for the fair Maid Marian. Will the evil Sheriff of Nottingham foil their plans?

We hope you enjoy these extracts by Hamzah, Mia, Ibby and Tom.
