Last week we gave you a ‘Heads-Up’ on what we would cover this week in class.
Alan Peat sentence types have been a focus this week in storywriting. Here are some resources that might come in handy :
What an amazing response from parents! About half the yeargroup were represented on Friday morning to learn about sentences. With the advent of the Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Test this May for Year 6, Grammar is taking a far more important place in English Writing. Parents Information prepared by the Government can be found here (Parents%20Leaflet%20-%20Grammar%20punctuation%20and%20spelling%20test%2015%20Nov%202012), and here is a sample test for Parents from The Guardian.
Here are the resources that were used in the workshop:
– the opening test (Literacy_1_Starter_Worksheet)
– the Powerpoint presentation used in the hall and classroom (Exciting_Sentences 080313)
– the list of subject/verb sentences that can be turned into complex sentences(extendable_sentences)
– a very handy list of grammar words and their meanings, especially if you have forgotten them (Grammar_terms)
– the ‘Sentence Trick’ booklet shared with parents who attended(Sentence trick), which we use in SODA on Mondays.
We did not hand out any evaluation forms on the morning,
but feel free to add a comment at the bottom of this post.
So, if you need something to do, be like Shaggy and make a sandwich(out of words)!
