Monster Hunt




I don’t know anything about you, but I know I’ve always feared the dark… So entering a pitch black cave is the worst of my nightmares. Especially when I know I’m on my own and there’s a massive creature in the cavern. So, to overcome my fear, I start singing “Cave on the Hill” by Egg Sheeran, slowly to myself.

When the bell rang Emma made her way to the staff room to get her coffee. In the corridor she bumped into her colleague Mark, Mark Moody.

“Hi Mark, what are you teaching today?” asked Emma.

“Oh, I have wood technology. By the way I have Lucas, didn’t you give him …

What?
A rainbow is the reflection of light in a transparent object: drop of water, glass, etc...

How?
