It was the smell of smoke that drew him towards the door…
When he reached it a blanket of grey, wispy smoke crept out from underneath, crawling over his shoes like a colony of ants. Thrusting the door open, he was hit by a wall of intense heat. In the centre of the room was a circle of fire. The deadly, golden flames danced into the air as they devoured the wooden floor.
Panic set in…What had caused the fire? What should he do to stop it?
Can you continue the story about the mysterious fire?

2) SPAG challenge

Can you use a series of questions in your writing? Remember to use a question mark!
E.g. What had caused the fire? Would his home be destroyed? How would he stop the flames from spreading?

3) Philosophy time

House-fires are a real risk. Can you think of any top tips to give people who are caught in a fire? What should you do if you see a fire? What can you do at home to reduce the risk of a house-fire?

    Under the ring was a mysterious hall filled with paintings in gold and silver frames. As he jumped into the ring he noticed a red light at the end of the hall. He walked towards it until he realised it was a pool of magma with huge chunks of obsidian in it. He also noticed a mysterious door at the end…

    Panic sets in… What if the fire spreads before he could stop it? What could he do to stop it? He hears the distant sounds of a ringing siren as he watches a old chair to ashes on the wooden floor boards of the unknown room below. He takes no notice that he has never seen the mysterious room below.

    Panic sets in and the man was shocked. Suddenly, he hears the fire engine from far away. Then the sirens are heard coming closer,closer,closer, so they can put the fire out.

    Panic sets in as the fire burns in a circle and the flames reach the fire alarm. The fire alarm goes off and the man is shocked from what he saw. He asked himself how did this happen? What caused this ring of fire? Was the light too bright? I hope everyone’s going to be alright.

    Hi mrs Joyce,
    Panic sets in as the confused man froze in fear. The red hot chair bursts in flames as it goes to fall in the ring of fire. The awakening sound of the sirens alert the everyone in the apartment. As he wonders what could have caused this terrible fire.Wait! Was it the fire falling from the heat of the lamp. That would be the reason the fire started the man ran out of the room before it got any worse.
