Sir Thomas and the Lady in the Tower
Plot by Mr Cockcroft's Class
Story written by Kim Broadhurst, Sarah Parker and Yin Fung Chan
Hello,my name is Sir Thomas. I'm a knight. I don't have full
armour. I have a bow and arrows for my weapon. King Arthur had sent
me on a quest to rescue a lady from a tower.
Then we came to a river. My horse tried to jump over it but
it didn't make it. We both fell in. When I got my head over the
surface I suddenly heard Merlin's voice saying:
"Look all around,
I had to leave Camelot, on my horse, in very bad weather.
I went into the woods and saw a pack of wolves. The wolves
surrounded me and my horse. I got my bow and arrow and got
ready to kill one of the wolves. It was dark in the woods. I
found two pieces of wood on the grassy ground. I rubbed them
together and threw them on the wolves. I jumped over the
wolves and looked at the wolf that the fire landed on. The
wolf did not survive and died. All the other wolves ran off.
Me and my horse galloped away.
Look on the ground,
And you will never drown."
Of course I had to rescue the lady so I kept on walking
forward. Suddenly Rancor kicked me on my leg. Now then that was a
sign that he wanted to fight. I jumped on a tree. I got an egg and
chucked it on his face. Then I quickly got my bow and arrow. Guess
what I did next. I aimed it at his eye. Bulls-eye! I got it. Blood
started coming out. I decided to get on with my journey. I could
still hear his screams. When they stopped I knew he was dead. Many
days later I finally found the tower. I found the entrance but it was
locked. I got out my bow and four arrows. I shot them at the door.
One on each side. Then I realised there was an axe on the floor. I
picked it up and knocked down the door. There were no stairs so I
went outside. I had a rope and I climbed up the tower, only halfway I
got hit by an arrow. I fell to the ground. Luckily it hit the side of
my knife. I was so startled that I fell down. There was a wizard
there. Arthur had shown me a picture of this wizard and said that I
had to battle him before I rescued the lady. He said that I had to
say his name, Shelock,3 times in front of him. So I said his name 3
times and he screamed. He got mad really quick. I punched him when he
wasn't looking. That started the fight. Before a wolf had scratched
me, so I was hurt. Ten minutes later I found out that I had many bad
wounds and I had won. I rescued the lady from the tower. On my way
back to Camelot, though, I was so tired that I collapsed.
Then in a flash I was on the land, except for one thing
my horse. I saw it floating away in the river. I walked away
from the river. Two hours later I saw a knight. The knight
came up to me. He said in a deep voice, "I am the evil
knight, Rancor. You are trespassing. Go back to where you
came from or die."
I think that perhaps my friend, Sir Marshall, should continue the
