Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Two ideas can be joined using a joining word, 'and'
  2. Exclamation marks can be used to show surprise, such as when the giant follows Jack down the beanstalk.
  3. Some adverbs describing how characters may move can be used at the start of a sentence, such as 'quickly'.
  4. Some adverbials of time build suspense, such as 'suddenly'
  5. When we start a sentence with an adverb, we call it a fronted adverbial.

Common misconception

Pupils may tick their success criteria without checking and correcting.

When you are modelling your write, continuously refer back to the success criteria yourself. Adapt the success criteria accordingly to help pupils experience success.
