Starting Sentences with “Leon and the Place Between”

In English Year 4 have been doing creative writing based on the book “Leon and the Place Between”. They have been continuing the story from the part where Leon enters the Abdul Kazam, the magician’s box. They have been thinking about different ways to start their sentences to hook the reader in as well as using adjectives and adverbs to create as much detail as possible. All the children have created a fantastic story and everyone should be congratulated for their action-packed tales. Here are some superb sentences from our stories.

“Abdul Kazam appeared dramatically, everyone clapped, but Leon was the loudest.” -Ava

“Poof!  Leon had disappeared into the mist. It was too late for no one could save him now.” -Keira

“Nervously, Leon came up onto the stage and stepped cautiously into the box!” -Riana
