    In the baby blue sky, a light green, sparkling dragon soared past the clouds.
    In the dark, gloomy cave, the beady eyed, scaly beast sat alone crying in despair.

    My dragon has sparkling yellow eyes, dark red scales,long sharp claws and a curled up tail with a dark green point at the end.

    he breaths out rainbow fire that is boiling hot so if he blows fire at you he will burn you in one go. and last but not least his name is Bernard!

      You have a lot of detail here Tabby! Good job 🙂
      I like the use of a preposition ‘a dark green point at the end’

      Your sentence has made me curious Isabella!
      I wonder why he was wet, had he been flying in the rain?
      Well done 🙂

    The dragon’s head is as scaly as a fish. His spikes are as sharp as shark teeth. His tail is as hard as a solid rock and smashes everything in its path.

      I’m impressed with your use of similes Elliot!
      You also used an apostrophe in the correct place 🙂
      The powerful verb ‘smashes’ is a great choice!

    The dragon has wings exploding with colours and teeth as sharp as glimmering razors.When Chang met the dragon he stared and spotted a familiar kite hidden under the shining, precious treasure.

      ‘wings EXPLODING with colours’ ‘spotted’ (powerful verbs) ‘sharp as GLIMMERING razors’ (simile) ‘under the. . ‘ (preposition)

      Your sentences truly ‘wowed’ me Benjamin! 🙂 Well done

      Your sentences could be a part of the synopsis Martha! Good job!
      I like that you have used apostrophes in the correct places and you extended your sentence with ‘but’ 🙂

    He is red and scaly and he’s got prickly spikes all over his back. Fire comes out of his mouth and smoke comes out of his nostrils. He lives in a dark, gloomy cave in the forest.

      This is fantastic Ava! Not just spikes on his back – PRICKLY spikes ALL OVER his back! You have lots of ‘where/ prepositions’ in here too.
      ‘out of his mouth/nostrils’ ‘in a dark, gloomy cave’ ‘in the forest’
      Great detailed sentences, well done 🙂

    In the cave of a volcano lived a sad, lonely dragon. He was red with yellow cat eyes. His tail had orange spikes on and his teeth were like daggers.

      I like the use of 2a ‘sad, lonely’ to tell me how the dragon FEELS! Emotions are important in an adventure story 🙂
      Your simile ‘teeth like daggers’ works really well to help me imagine your dragon. Good work Bella!

    In my room, a dragon burst through the window and caused a crash. The dragon had crimson red, shiny scales, piercing green eyes it had dagger like horns and a feathered tail. I was terrified!

    His claws are as sharp as a point of a knife.
    His teeth are as sharp as a sword.
    His body is as colourful as a rainbow.
    He breathes hot,burning fire
    He has a tail as pointy as a pen.

    The dragon was glimmering green and had jagged spikes down its back.It was long like a snake and flew just above the ground.It looked scary but it actually was just afraid .

    The red scaly dragon begged and begged until Chang said OK you can come home with me. Chang hopped on the red scaly dragons back and they flew off into the baby blue sky. Then when they got to the village he shouted, don’t be afraid, he’s lonely. On New Years day they made a hut for the dragon and they all lived happily ever after.
