Homework Activity 21st September 2018
Look at this picture above. Can your child write a short description of the scene by themselves first. Think about describing the creature, the setting and the man’s feelings. Your child only needs to spend a maximum of 15 minutes writing an opening paragraph.
Next and most importantly, with an adult can you edit and improve your piece of work. Use a different colour pen first to identify any errors and anything you added. Finally, write out your best version underneath on your lined paper.
Mrs Robinson’s group: Can you edit and improve and check you have used:
Coordinating conjunctions (FANBOYS); Capital letters and full stops; Spelling check; expanded noun phrases.
Mr Hetherington’s group: Fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases, adjectival phrases and comma checks.
