Together, striving to be the best that we can be!


Firstly, I would like you to pick out five more words from your spelling list and learn them using ideas from the home learning pack or any ideas of your own, please. Let me know how you get on via the blog!


Then, using some of the vocabulary ideas you have come up with this week, I would like you to see how many of the sentences below you can edit and improve.


Can you...

  • add a fronted adverbial?
  • replace any of the nouns or verbs with more ambitious synonyms?
  • add in an adjective or two to put a better picture in your reader's head?
  • think carefully about where an adverb might have most impact?
  • use a conjunction and add some more information?


You can always use the question hand to focus your ideas...


Don't try to do everything listed above in one sentence!! Less is more when it comes to impact!!


Here are your sentences...


The man shut the window.


The light went out.


The boat was heading towards the rocks.


The men walked up to the lighthouse.


I will share some of my ideas on the blog later in the day but I'd love to see some of yours too!
