Use this suspense story KS2 resource to share Pie Corbett’s tale of suspense with your class, then create your own nightmarish short stories...
The Nightmare Man is built around a simple story idea – ‘facing your fear’. Everyone is afraid of all sorts of things. Start by making a class list with the children – try to move them away from the clichés such as ‘Dracula’ and on to other sorts of fears.
For their story they will need to choose something that their main character is afraid of. The character then has to face their fear and overcome it. By the end of the story, the main character is no longer so afraid – the fear has diminished.
