LO: TBAT write descriptively.


You are someone in the arena watching Androcles fight the lion.

Your task is to describe the scene.



As I sat in the crowd that day, the sun baked the arena in a glorious summer glow. People around me were jeering and shouting, “No mercy!” Towards the gladiators. I looked around the colossal arena, thousands of people were on the edge of their seats in excitement at the prospect of gladiators battling to the death. Suddenly a roar from below the arena, the crowd fell silent. CRASH! The arena gates opened and a ferocious, blood-thirsty lion leapt into the centre of the arena.
