Maple Class adding amazing adjectives! 08.11.16.
Yesterday in our literacy learning we collaborated together to consider the most effective and interesting adjectives to describe the main characters in the Rama and Sita story.
We were all keen to make our adjectives more spicy and up levelled our describing words to create the best descriptions.
Today, we applied our knowledge of amazing adjectives to form our own descriptive sentences about the story characters. Using our colourful semantic cards, we matched the correct colour card to our sentence words.
In particular, we used the adjective and conjunction cards. Which adjectives did you select to describe Rama or Sita? Explain why you chose them to someone at home.
Which conjunctions did you pick to extend your sentences and include more detail? Were there any other conjunctions you could have picked? How could you find this out?
During our Literacy today, we worked in pairs to join two sentences using a conjunction.
First, we wrote down a fact we had learnt about the human body.
Then we chose the most appropriate conjunction to join the two facts together. Now we are well prepared for our Big Write tomorrow.
Collaborating in pairs, Palm Class have been creating minibeast sentences which contain co-ordinating conjunctions.
Co-ordinating conjunctions give equal importance to the words or sentences they connect.
We discussed the importance of both sentences being complete by themselves and making sense on their own.
We explored the outcome of using different conjunctions for our sentences, before recording our final choices.
