This is a small part of the story "Hansel and Gretel"retold by Room 15. We have been learning new vocabulary and ways to make our sentences and paragraphs more interesting for a reader. We used what we had been practising to write this together.
Suddenly the evil witch captured Hansel and thrust him into a tiny cage. “Let me out!” pleaded Hansel, but to no avail. The witch just cackled, “Hee hee hee. I’ve been looking for a boy like you. Eat up. I want you to become plump and appetising for my feast.”
She handed him a plateful of delectable and scrumptious sweets and pastries which Hansel was unable to resist.
Some weeks later the hideous witch approached Hansel in the cage. With a sly grin spreading across her face she snarled, “Hold out your finger you little rat-faced weasel to show me how fat you’ve become.” But despite quivering with fear Hansel had come up with a cunning and clever plan. He held out a scrawny chicken bone to show her knowing that she was gullible and had failing eyesight.
As the witch grasped the chicken bone she shrieked, “Blast! You’re even skinnier than before.”
