Scott and the Gladiator

Retell and Paraphrase 2

Title -  Scott and the Gladiator

Key words from the text



Fight gladiator

Fight lion



What happened in the beginning?
Scott looked in the old mirror. Someone looked back at him. The little boy in the old mirror looked a bit similar to Scott. “Come on,” cried the boy, “Or we’ll be late,”. Scott took one step forward and he felt himself getting sucked into the mirror. Scott looked around in a strange way. He was unbelievably in a humongous arena. There he was in front of a tall man. The man walked towards him and gave him his shield, sword and helmet. Right there in front of him was a weird looking man wearing such strange clothes. The man ran up to Scott with his sword and tried to cut off Scott's little head covered with blond hair. Scott stode up for himself he ran up close to the weird looking gladiator and tried to stab him with his sword, but he had missed because the sword was too heavy. He’d dropped the sword and landed on the gladiators biggest toe. The man started shouting and hopping around, suddenly his helmet slammed shut! The humongous gladiator ran out of the arena and screamed “Ouuuuuuuchhhh!”  

What happened in the middle?
Next came the lion who stared at the boy. The lion started snapping at the boy and ran after him. Scott reached out to scare the lion. As he scared the lion the lion ran out of the arena. The emperor's flicked a coin to Scott.

What happened at the end?
As Scott took his armor of the sunlight made the shield gleam like the old mirror did. As he saw his reflection, he felt himself getting sucked into the shield. And back into his room he went. Scott looked into the mirror again and saw nothing but himself.
