Story starter!

It was the moment they had been dreading.

Chains had bound their citadel; link after link of brutal, cold steel.

As they poked their heads out of their windows, they drank in the view through eyes squinted against the icy, punishing wind. The world they knew appeared as insignificant specks, hundreds of metres below.

They had ben banished. It was time to find a new home.

Can you continue the story? Who are ‘they’? Why had ‘they’ been banished?

Sentence challenge!

Can you include a complex sentence containing a main clause and a subordinate clause?

Can you separate the clauses using a comma?

Can you use one of the following conjunctions to link your clauses: but, or, yet, so?

E.g. This had once been a happy place, but now everything had changed.

Sick sentences!

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

The citadel went off above the clouds. The sky was blue.
