KS1/2 literacy idea: a mysterious voice is heard in a science lab This short drama can be shown on an interactive whiteboard and used as a lesson starter. It is designed as a stimulus for writing an adventure story in KS2 English.

We visit a grand old castle and travel along the corridors towards a mysterious room. When we enter, we see bubbling chemicals and smoke and realise we are inside a big laboratory. Suddenly a deep voice bellows: ‘Ah, I’ve been expecting you…’ What would happen next?

The clip should be really useful for classes who are into adventure stories and could be helpful in motivating boys to write.
