Can you use prepositions at the beginning of your sentences? (In Year 2, you don’t need to worry about including a comma.)

Starting your sentences the same way each time is BORING! Watch this video about six different ways to start your sentences.

6 Ways to Start a Sentence

Have a look at these setting descriptions. Which setting description is better? Why?

 

 

Example 1:

 

The sun is setting. I am sat on a rock. I can see a fire. There is a lady. She is wearing brown.  I can see a rack. There are fish on it. There is a man. He is carving a pot and tools. There is a lady with her baby. The baby is sleeping on a brown rug. The rug is made out of animal skin. There is a second lady sitting with her child. They look nice. They are watching the lady cook.

 

Example 2:

 

In the distance, the orange sun is setting. Shivering, I sit huddled on a cold, hard boulder in front of the roaring fire. I can smell the meat cooking and it smells delicious. Opposite me, there is a lady wearing a dark brown tunic made of animal skin. She is deep in thought. Interestingly, I notice a rack made of wood and it is full of fish drying. In front of it, there is an old man who is carefully carving a pot and tools out of wood. Beside him, there is a young lady with her baby. Her baby is sleeping peacefully on soft, chocolate brown fur. What is he dreaming of? To the right of me, a lady and her young child are sitting together gazing at their friend who is stirring the evening meal. They look friendly and content.
