Sentence challenge

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need your help to get better. Please help.

The boy lay in the grass. He looked at the door. It opened. He gasped.

 

Grammar/punctuation challenge

A relative clause adds extra information to a sentence using relative pronouns: who, which, where, when, whose or that.

For example:

He could see the mysterious door at the bottom of the garden, which had troubled him for so long.

The young boy, who had been sitting there all morning, was delighted when the door began to open.

The tiny creature, whose eyes were the size of peas, emerged from the stone door.

Add in an appropriate relative clause to the sentence below.

The door, which___________, creaked slowly open.

Write your own sentences with relative clauses.

Large Moving House

 

Can you finish the story and describe what Harry saw?

Harry Shepherd opened his eyes and gazed up at his bedroom ceiling. He crinkled his eyes up and yawned, then rubbed the sleep from them and sat on the edge of his bed. The previous evening his mum had opened the window slightly, letting a gentle breeze through. Mrs Shepherd knew that her son preferred it when the house was cool at night.

However, when Harry sat on the edge of his bed, his room was not cool: it was freezing! Harry shivered, pulling his Spiderman duvet over his bare legs. “What on Earth?” he muttered to himself. There was a gale blowing through his bedroom window. Thinking that it must be an extremely windy day, Harry walked over to his wardrobe and pulled out a jumper. Pulling the jumper down over his head, Harry strolled over to the open window. He drew back the red curtains expecting to see the leaves blowing all over their garden. Maybe even the garden furniture had blown over like it had last time the weather was bad.

The sight that met Harry as he gazed out of the window was certainly not what he had expected...

Can you draw a picture of where Harry’s house might eventually land?
