  • I would like to use this resource to improve my students' vocab when creating suspense in narratives, however, I'm unable to download it. When I click download, it says download key unrecognised. Could someone please fix this problem as I'm very keen to use the resource.

This great word mat features a variety of vocabulary that could help to create tension, suspense, and mystery. E.g. suddenly, distress, dread, unexpectedly, tremble. Brilliant for helping your children expand their vocabulary and create some truly gripping pieces of creative writing.
