13/03/15 Key Skills

Key skills this week has taken an exciting new adventure! I want you to do it on Office 365 in your personal OneNote page – preferably in the “homework” section under your name.

I will post it on here also, just in case you can’t access Office 365 for whatever reason…


The storm broke early in the evening and by seven o’clock it looked as if Heathrow might have to shut down. Runway One had disappeared in the rain. Runway Two was a canal. Half the planes had been delayed and the other half were circling hopelessly above the clouds, waiting their turn to land. The wind had blown an Air France DC10 all the way to Luton while, in a jumbo jet from Tokyo, seventy-nine Japanese passengers had all been sick at the same time. It was a night no one would forget. 

Above is the beginning paragraph to “Granny” by Anthony Horowitz. As we have looked recently at great openings to stories, your task is to take that paragraph and make it even better! We looked at: dramatic short sentences, rhetorical questions, scene setting and generally confusing the reader with cliff-hangers. It will be great for us to then compare how we have all changed the opening in different ways!

I look forward to reading all of them 🙂
