This pack contains seven posters illustrating different techniques children can use to create suspense in their own writing in KS2.

Striking images are combined with examples sentences for each of seven writing techniques:

  • using different senses
  • making promises
  • short impact sentences
  • longer sentences to draw out the wait
  • keeping secrets
  • personification
  • powerful verbs.

Blank versions of the poster enable pupils to suggest their own model sentences, creating an interactive, working wall.

Giant versions of the posters are also included.
