Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Writing about what happened on a trip can come at the middle and end of a recount
  2. Using time adverbials helps the reader to understand the sequence of events
  3. Expressing an opinion about the event can come at the end of the recount
  4. Adding a 'Did you know...?' question at the end of a recount shows the reader what you learnt on the trip

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.
