Story starter!

It was the middle of the night when they came.

A typical autumn evening, there was a scattering of fallen, auburn leaves on the highway. Light leaked from a flickering streetlamp, which buzzed faintly as the light bulb struggled.

The wind moaned quietly, and the leaves crackled as they rose and fell, dancing as if controlled by an unseen puppet master.

A humming noise was the first sign of their arrival. In the distance at first, then filling the street as it came closer. It hovered several feet from the road, tilting slightly from side to side as if surveying the land around.

A little girl gasped as she watched from her bedroom window…

Sentence challenge!

Can you make a list of verbs to describe what the ship is doing?

Can you choose one of your verbs to improve my sentence?

The ship went down the street.

Is there anything else you can add to improve the sentence?

Sick sentences!

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

A girl looked out of her window. She saw a ship. It moved towards her. It made a noise. She was a bit scared.
