Sentence challenge!

Fronted adverbials

A fronted adverbial goes at the beginning of a sentence.

It describes the verb in the sentence.

It describes where, when and how.

E.g. For many years, the world she lived in had seemed miserable and grey.

As she watched the balloon soaring upwards, a glimmer of hope sparked inside her.

Your challenge is to write a short story about the little girl and the red balloon and include at least 2 examples of fronted adverbials. Please highlight these once you have finished your story.

Story starter!

In a world where everything seemed black and white, it brought colour. In a world where things were often bleak, it brought joy.

The drawing of a girl’s outstretched fingers pointed at the red balloon as it floated skywards.
