Using this sentence starter, I would like you to write a short story. This can be on the computer or on paper.

When writing it, think very carefully about your writing targets: what do you need to do to be a strong level 3 or level 4 writer?

  1. Have you included a variety of sentence types (ABS, BOYS, Burger sentences, SWAPS)?
  2. Can you include modal verbs: should, would, could?
  3. Could you include an If sentence?
  4. Have you included speech?
  5. Could you include ? , . ! or even ()
