In a park, there lived a family of ducks – a mother and her three babies.

One morning, mother duck went out looking for breakfast. As she was searching, a fox leaped out from the bushes. It left her with an injured wing. A passing runner gently lifted her up, and took her to the vet…

Later that morning, the ducklings awoke to find their mother gone. Where was she? They searched all over the park but she wasn’t there!

At last they came to the lake. β€˜She must be here!’ said one of the ducklings. β€˜We must find her!’

    Oh goodness Maja you have really left me on a cliffhanger with your story ending. I really want to know if the Mummy Duck was ok!!
    You have used a very clever technique in your writing – you have suggested that different actions happened without actually saying what they were. You will see what I mean with the bit about the fox jumping out and the wing being injured.
    A great little story.
    Well done!
