What do the words at the top of the picture say?

Who lives inside the house?

Perfect picture!

Imagine what the man looks like from the front. Draw or describe his appearance.

Story starter!

It all began with his mind. This was where his true power lay.

The slightest idea would burst magnificently into life at the slightest twitch. If he imagined fire, flames would appear. If he imagined happiness, people around him would smile. If he imagined pain…

Sentence challenge!

Can you write a sentence containing a relative clause?

E.G. The magician, who had incredible powers, strode confidently across the marble floor.

It splits the main clause.

The clause begins with ‘who’, ‘which’ or ‘with’.

It must supply an extra bit of information to the sentence.

Commas should surround the clause.

Sick sentences!

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

The man was wearing a coat and hat and carried a stick. He walked across the floor.
