Spelling test

 

Ask your grown ups to test you on the spellings you got on Monday.

Writing:

Thank you to those of you who sent in the first draft of your story.

 

What went well: 

Original ideas

Some of you had used relative clauses

Some of you had used some expanded noun phrases.

 

Areas to develop:

Remember to start your sentences with interesting openers - Try to avoid 'Then...'

Remember to punctuate carefully - some of your sentences are a bit long!

 

Watch the video below to see why we need to edit...

I noticed that lots of you used speech in your story.  Watch this short video to ensure you produce perfect speech punctuation.

Now edit your story. Remember to check for:

1) Punctuation

2) Spelling

3) Paragraphs

4) Can you add some exciting adjectives or expanded noun phrases?

5) Does your story make sense.  Read it out loud to a family member if you can and see if they can follow it.

 

When you are happy with it, either copy it out neatly, or if you can type it up.  If you'd prefer to, you could make your story into a book.

 

I can't wait to read them!
