Story starter!

It happened in the dead of night. The garden light illuminated the person, casting a mysterious shadow.

As silent as a whisper in the night, the figure stealthily crept towards the green, wooden doors. Click…The key slipped into the metal lock, the cold mechanisms inside responding to the familiar shape of the object that had been slipped inside. Seeing the padlock pop open as expected, the figure slipped the slender bolt across into its resting position. The doors groaned agonizingly, the figure turning to survey the surrounding area, alarmed at the loudness of the sound their actions had made.

The coast seemed clear. Resuming their mission, the shadow slipped inside the room. There it was. This was the sight and moment they had been waiting for…

Sentence challenge!

A preposition is a word which shows the relationship between one thing and another.

It may tell you where a thing is in relation to something else. E.g. The silver, shining bolt was on the door.

It may tell you when something is in relation to another event. E.g. She refused to leave the room until she knew the coast was clear.

Can you find any prepositions in your writing? Can you write 3 sentences that contain prepositions?

Is it possible to begin a sentence with a preposition? Can you end a sentence with a preposition? What about trying to start and end a sentence with a preposition?

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need your help to get better. Can you help?

The shadow went across the garden. A light shone. The shadow touched the lock and opened the door.
