Lesson 1

Learning Objective: To use a range of sentences with more than one clause by using a range of conjunctions - when, because, if, although

 

Task 1:

 

What are conjunctions and why do we use them? Can you remember any conjunctions?

 

Watch the video below to find out about coordinating conjunctions

Coordinating conjunctions join two sentences together and give equal importance to the sentences they connect.

 

We can remember coordinating conjunctions using FANBOYS

 

 

Task 2:

 

Create your own coordinating conjunction sentences using the Alma pictures below. Use FANBOYS to include a coordinating conjunction in every sentence.

 

Example - 'Alma couldn't open the door    but    she desperately wanted to go inside'

 

 

 

Lesson 2

Learning Objective: To use a range of sentences with more than one clause by using a range of conjunctions - when, because, if, although

 

Task 1:

 

Today we will find out about subordinating conjunctions.

 

These conjunctions still join two sentences together BUT ...one sentence makes sense on it's own (the main clause), the other sentence does not (subordinate clause). The subordinate clause just adds extra information.

 

We can remember subordinate conjunctions by...

Task 2:

 

Create your own subordinating conjunction sentences using the Alma pictures below. Use ISAWAWABUB to include a subordinating conjunction in every sentence.

 

Example - 'Alma walked towards the doll   although   it scared her.'

 

 

 

 

Lesson 3

Learning Objective: To plan a narrative with clear structure, setting and plot

 

Task 1:

 

Today, you will be creating a story map for your big write, and including these examples for each story step.

 

1. Draw a backwards 'S' on your page. This will be your story map. 

2. Write the numbers 1-6 on your map.

 

Each number will be a new story step. You can see what happens on each number using the pictures below.

 

 

Task 2:

 

During the previous lessons, you should have been able to write your own example sentences using all of these features below...

 

  1. Expanded noun phrases (determiner, adjective, noun)
  2. Prepositional phrase (below, ontop, through ....)
  3. Coordinating conjunctions (FANBOYS)
  4. Subordinating conjunctions (ISAWAWABUB)

 

First, for each story step (1-6), can you add your examples of expanded noun phrases.

'         Eg. 'The whistling, blustery snow storm'

 

Repeat with prepositional phrases, coordinating conjunctions and subordinating conjunctions. 

 

REMEMBER - these do not need to be full sentences. These are just examples of the features that you can use in your big write.

 

 

 

Lesson 4:
