What do you think of our cool Animoto video? This combines photographs of all of our secret spy bases. We'll be writing stories about these bases - using our suspense techniques - over the course of the next couple of weeks!

Imagine you are waiting in the rain for a fellow spy to come and hand you a secret briefcase...when suddenly you feel like you are being watched...

Focus on:
* Using impact sentences
* Short paragraphs

Feeling clever? I want to see 'commas before connectives', please!
