Main Literacy Lesson Wednesday - Whole Group
In today's session, those pupils who are in school will work together with myself to model write a setting description for The Dream Giver. The pupils will then 'magpie' ideas to use in their own writing tomorrow. We will use the nouns and adjectives work we completed on Friday 08/01/21 to help us. We will also try to incorporate coordinating and subordinating conjunctions like the ones we learnt about on Monday 11/01/21 and Tuesday 12/01/21. At the end of the session in school I will upload the work we completed. Your child needs to read through this looking for the adjectives, nouns, coordinating and subordinating conjunctions we have used. They can then try to improve on what we have done. Tomorrow the pupils will write their own scene settings.
Read a book on Bug Club.

Main Literacy Lesson - Whole Group
Today the children need to edit the work they produced yesterday, describing the scene from The Dream Giver. They need to ensure:
That their writing makes sense
That they check and correct their spellings
That they have used capital letters and full stops
They have checked for adjectives to describe their nouns and up-level those adjectives using the vocabulary ninja sheet
They they have included coordinating conjunctions (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so) to link two sentences
They have included a subordinating conjunction (if, since, as, when, although, while, after, before, until, because) to link two clauses together
When editing, children make their corrections in a different colour pen then write their piece out again in it's final form.
