Writing - Character Description
Today, please continue with your character description. I would hope that you've written about two-thirds of a page of A4 (a minimum of 6 sentences would be great, thank you).
Don't forget about improving your sentences. Here is a reminder:
- Ma Liang paints pictures.
- Ma Liang paints beautiful, magical pictures because he has a magic paintbrush.
Optional Task - Editing
If you finished your writing yesterday, maybe you could have a go at self-editing. If we were in school, I would be teaching you how to edit your own writing this term, using a purple pen. Could you check:
- CL (captial letters) and FS (full stops)
- HFW (high frequency words) Can you use word lists to check your spellings of some common words? In Year 2, we don't expect you to be a perfect speller, but using a word bank to check some of the common words is a really good habit to start.
Here is some writing from one of the children from last year... can you see some of their editing using a purple pen?
I would really be super impressed even if you try to do just one of these things. Even if it looks a bit messy, it doesn't matter, because you are improving the quality of your writing.
