Today we experimented with different ways of beginning sentences, following the ISPACED model:

I: -ing endings (verbs that begin our sentences – running happily along the lane)
S: similes (‘as soft as snow…‘ or ‘like a cloud…‘)
P: preposition (words like ‘under‘, ‘over‘ that usually come before a verb)
A: adverb (an adjective that describes a verb – joyfully he ran down the hall)
C: conjunction (when he fell)
E: -ed clause (Injured in the accident, the boy was taken to hospital.)
D: dialogue (“My mum will go mad!” George shouted as he walked through the door.)

We really think that if we keep practising, and writing sentence using these openings, our writing will improve dramatically.
