100 word challenge – Stories from other cultures

You have 100 words to write a paragraph, maybe an opening paragraph or two based on this picture.

Think about where the story is set.

What is happening?

Who are the main characters?

What problem do they have?

Remember to write in full sentences with capital letters and full stops. Also remember to use connectives like we have done this week. Can you use interesting adjectives and adverbs?
