In Year 3, the fractions unit of work was planned for the summer term and much of this learning may have been missed. We have therefore added a number of recap steps to ensure children have a thorough understanding of tenths and equivalent fractions before moving into adding and subtracting.
In this lesson, we will use our plans to write the climax in short parts. We will finish by reading aloud our paragraph and reflect on its impact on the reader.
At the beginning of the lesson in the writing warm up, Ms Webster refers to time conjunctions, we call these adverbials which show us when something is being done. She also uses the phrase, prepositional phrases which we do use in class but in this context we mean an adverbial which show us where something is done. Well call all these different adverbials, fronted adverbials when they are at the beginning of the sentence. I hope this helps if that has confused you.
Mild - when you are doing your writing you can pick one of two ways which will help you the most. Magpie Ms Webster's first sentence and then complete the sentence yourself OR you can magpie what Ms Webster has written in black and then choose your own vocabulary for the pink and blue words, e.g. adjectives, verbs and adverbs.
Spicy - please keep challenging yourself with varying the fronted adverbials you use, e.g. when, where and how.
Hot - please can you challenge yourself by using varied sentence lengths. Note how Ms Webster's writing flows so well, she uses short and long sentences. Can you try this?
