#WAKWHS2 The Quest Has Begun…

Arabella has just gone missing. The king has announced the quest. Simon has accepted the quest. Or, In the words of some year sixes:

George K:        King Henry rose from his chair. All of the children stopped and cried; the jesters dropped off their stilts and threw them on the floor. The cooks dropped the food; the room went silent. “What! This is not meant to happen, has she been stolen?” As he continued, his cheek rippled in anger as he began to sweat and turn red. “We need to find Arabella! Now!” While finishing his speech, he smashed his hand in his food and sat down. “Any volunteers? In fact, who thinks they can rise to the challenge? The strongest man in the land!” Everyone stood back apart from one…

Eliza K:         Simon stood up with courage and he replied, “I’ll do it! Please. I have killed all of these creatures, I will not let you down I promise. I am brave and bold; I have a shield and a sword. I am not a normal man, I am a knight!” Everybody moved away to make that they weren’t involved whilst the king stared in amazement.

Lauren C:      “I do not know where she is! So that is why I am requesting the bravest man, more specifically, a knight, the bravest of them all. The boldest, the -” When he was cut off by Sir Simon.

Then in a confident voice he remarked, “I, Sir Simon, will find her! I have before slayed dragons! Fought wizards and challenged unicorns. I am surely worthy enough to go on the quest – to save Lady Arabella…”

Matthew J:       “I am the one that shall go. I shall go because I have just won my spurs for killing the dragon of Senlis. I have frozen fire and shot a target from 40 miles away! I have smashed through windows and broke through walls. I shall go!”

Selin H:         “I shall find Arabella for I am the man you are looking for. I have killed dragons, burnt unicorns and tricked the smartest wizard in the world. Being the man to find Arabella, I want something in return… This quest is more than a walk in the park; I do understand. I have seen the things the average person would not be able to deal with, I have seen death at every corner. I have had experience. So, you can see I’m your man!” Explained Simon, feeling confident and triumphant.

Parris L:       “I, Simon, will save the lady,” he said with fake confidence, “I have slain dragons and escaped wizards; survived poison and more. And, my motive, well let’s just say I have some questions to ask that only she can answer…”

Some very powerful speeches from Simon! It appears he is definitely the right man for the quest.

We are barely into our stories and I cannot wait to read on. All of year six have definitely succeeded in engaging the reader so far! More great writing to follow…

  1. Hannah: Everything was perfect, until….. Simon had just been knighted and was enjoying the celebratory banquet with an endless amount of guests from the upper class and lower class. There were twenty rows of freshly glossed golden sand-like tables and cushioned chairs depending on whether you were rich or not.
    Selin: Arabella was gone. No longer were the jesters dancing ,no more were they singing. The children had stopped monkeying around and the parents were no longer laughing. The cooks had stopped preparing food. The dinner plated were on the floor. This happy, great, lovely and remarkable scene had turned dark, pear shaped. Laughs turned to weeps. The scene was horrible.
    Lauren: “hurrah!!!” ride the people , whilst laughter and joy echoed throughout the hall , catching from person t person like a yawn. Everyone was joyous and happy with their good spirits bursting out of them, dancing and laughing like they never had before. There were thousands of people in the hall enjoying the banquet that they when suddenly…..”aarrgghh!!” She-was-gone. The young , beautiful lady Arabella , gone. There was no sound, only silence.

  2. ”As I was saying…” Simon began, ” I will kill who ever took Arabella an-” He was interrupted once more by Edward,
    “not only I will kill the person who took her, I will also slay a dragon in honour of this kingdom!” Edward said looking at Simon cunningly.
    “but have you faced a task as great as this before?” Simon asked knowing he had won this fight!
    “stop, both of you!” The King bellowed “I shall pick who I want to complete a task so great as this…”, both men looked at the king, especially Edward. Clearing his throat once more the king spoke again “For this quest I shall chose a man of bravery, strength, intelligence and-”
    ” I am the man you need my lord!” Edward yelled placing his hand on his chest,
    “I haven’t finished,” the King said, “The man also needs to know what he is doing and has done this thing before!”, Simon was smiling at this moment in time.
    “I know Lady Arabella a lot better then Edward, and, I have just been knighted so it will be my first duty being knighted”, Simon began, “I have also, killed a dragon!” Simon then finished,
    “On the other hand, I have trained a um-er, a dog? Simon can do it!” Then Edward darted out of the room!
    ” I shall set out tomorrow, my lord.” Simon then left the hall…
