Writing

Friday 20th November 2020

LC: I can edit my work. 

 

You're almost there! You've done some amazing work and I know because you have emailed it to me. 

Now, just take a few minutes to read it back through, maybe with your mummy or to a teddy. 

Check all of it makes sense. 

Then, you can play a game of bingo. 

In class, we ticked off all the things we had included in our work (and were able to cheat. If we had missed something, we could go back and add it, then tick it smiley)

 

Then we counted up the ticks. Some people had up to 24 ticks. Can you beat this???

 

Make your changes with a different coloured pen so it's really clear what you have changed. 

 

Thursday 19th November 2020

LC: I can write instructions. 

 

Now you have planned out your instructions, you can write them up to make fun, interesting sentences. 

 

Wednesday 18th November 2020

LC: I can plan my writing. 

 

Use the planning sheet below to plan your instructions on how to wash your chosen animal. 

Don't forget to use the Year 3 check list to check you have lots of year 3 features. 

Tuesday 17th November 2020

LC: I can use Year 3 spelling words. 

 

Follow this simple pattern to create some great Year 3 sentences. 

 

Don't forget to write the sentences about your own animal though! Which will you choose?

 

Thursday 12th Novemeber 2020

LC: I can identify Y3 writing features.

 

Read the text about how to wash a woolly mammoth. 

Remember to circle or highlight any new words and clarify them. 

(You can do this with a dictionary, asking a friend, or rereading the text to work out what it means). 

 

Once you have read and understood the text, you will then need to find the Year 3 features. 

 

You must find at least 4 of each, and there are answers on the powerpoint in case you get stuck. 

 

Let me know how you get on. 

Wednesday 11th November 2020

LC: I can use a range of adverbs. 

 

This is the same as yesterday's lesson, but today you will do the Greater Depth work. 

Complete the sentences, pretending to be the woolly mammoth. 

 

Write instructions that explain how to be washed. 

 

You can have as much fun as you like. 

 

Can't wait to see what you write.  

 

 

 

Tuesday 10th November 2020

LC: I can use a range of adverbs. 

 

Carefully and beautiful, can you create some double ly sentences. 

 

(Using 2 adverbs to add more information). 

 

Use the sentences provided and the adverb word mat to create some beautiful sentences. 

 

Monday 9th November 2020

LC: I can use subordinating conjunctions. 

 

Just like yesterday we are using conjunctions, but today you are writing your own sentences. Use the ones below to create about 5 or 6 sentences that tell a reader how to wash a woolly mammoth. 

 

(In class, we used our sentences from Wednesday, and improved them. Unfortunately, you won't have these, so can you create new sentences with conjunctions. ) 

 

Friday 6th November 2020

LC: I can use subordinating conjunctions. 

 

Conjunctions are amazing things. They are words that help us add information to a sentence, such as - 

and, but, because, when, while. 

 

Can you think of any more?

 

Watch Miss Gutteridge explain what is special about subordinating conjunctions...

(Clue - when the information you add, does make sense by it's self. It needs the main idea, or main clause, and the conjunction to make sense). 

...then complete the sentences about washing a woolly mammoth. 

 

You can do these sentences on email and send them straight to me, or do them on paper and email me a photo of them. 

 

 

 

Thursday 5th November 2020

LC: I can use imperative verbs. 

 

Stop! Sit! Dance! Jump! Scrub! Wash!

 

Which of these verbs would be best our instructions on how to wash a woolly mammoth?

 

 

In this lesson, you get to use imperative verbs (verbs that tell you what to do) like these to explain how to clean an animal. 

 

Open the powerpoint, choose your prehistoric animal you would like to write instructions for and write some instructions with some imperative verbs. 

 

 

 

Don't forget to email me your work.
