Week 12 The football match by Conor

Excitedly the players hurried out of the dressing room.They were so determined to win the match to get to the top of the table.But there was something in their way.They were up against the best team in the league.

10 minutes later they were up two nill and you could see their batteries were running low. At half-time, they got some sandwiches. After eating their sandwiches they felt a bit more energetic.

Sadly after the match, the score was 3-2 to the other team and everyone’s faces were white in shock.

    I must agree with Miss T. Your story flowed so nicely that I even forgot that I was looking for those “special words”. I hadn’t even considered a football match for a possible topic. I was impressed to see you use words like “excitedly” and “sadly” at the beginning of sentences. I wonder if you’ve been learning about ISPACEd beginnings to a sentence.

  2. Well done Conor – I think this is your best story yet!
    And sadly, we don’t always have the good news stories to tell after matches.
    Great work.

  3. Hi Conor
    You have fitted the prompt words so easily into your writing that I found it hard to spot them. I was particularly impressed with the use of the word ‘white’ to describe the team.

  4. Hi Conor. This story will resonate with a lot of readers. I think we’ve all been there. I, for one have been on the side of a pitch several times when everything is at stake. I think you’ve described the atmosphere and the determination really well. I must remember to pack a few sandwiches the next time Sam is playing a match!
