Year Six Prose Style: Sentence Openings

We have been looking at varying our sentence openings in our quest for 'elegant prose'.

Task: Please write a paragraph - 10 sentence long - about an detective. The challenge? Every sentence should open in a different manner, e.g.

Slowly, the Great Detective rose to his feet. Moving like a cat, he made his way towards the kitchen. The Detective, who was still feeling sore from the gunshot wound, made himself a cup of tea. He winced.

Due: Wednesday

Please learn the 'trans' spellings - click here for the Spelling City page - for our dictation test next Tuesday.
