Year 6 Prose: Elegant Prose

Do you want to be elegant?

One of the clever tricks you can use in an 11+ exam is to make sure that you use an 'elegant' prose style in the first six-seven lines; the first paragraph or two is your opportunity to show the Grumpy Examiner that you can use a variety of different sentence types and forms of punctuation.
