Sentence Structures for Creative Writing | KS4 English Teaching Resource

Download now >> Sentence Structures for Creative Writing

Click here to access a worksheet designed to help students vary the structure of their sentences for creative writing. I originally put it together for GCSE English Language Paper 1, but it can be used for stuff beyond KS4 and the exam etc. All credit must go to Chris Youles, author of Sentence Models for Creative Writing, for the inspiration.


The first page has examples of what the models might look like in practice and then guidance students can use to carry on writing. For example…

The second page has just the sentence models, with the idea being that students follow them and then develop each ‘section’ further.

Hope the stuff’s useful –
