I hope you are all ok. I will be sharing the learning you have been sending me in tomorrow's blog. I hope you are having a good week!! Please check out Barbara's Newsletter- it has information about the end of term and cromebook collection. The link is on the top of the school's website- Barbara has even recorded a video!
Thank you to Samirah for sending in her fantastic Story- it was lovely to read it!!
Today we are going to look back at our stories- we will proof read them and edit them. We will begin by editing.
Read your learning through once. Find a tickle pink and a a green for growth e.g
My tickle pink is that I have used exciting adjectives to create a picture in the readers mind.
I have used the correct punctuation throughout my story.
Then you need to think of a green for growth.
My green for growth is that I need to use a greater variety of sentence starters.
I need to describe the fight scene more clearly.
Your next job is to make some changes based on your green for growth - remember editing is not starting again. It is keeping the parts you are happy with and improving other parts- good luck!
Now you have edited - you can proof read your learning.
Proof reading is checking that :
-your sentences make sense
- You have used capitals at the beginning of your sentences for proper nouns
- You have used full stops
- You have used commas within sentences when you naturally need to take a breath.
