Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Adverbs of time sequence events in the story, and can be used at the start of a sentence, such as "One day,".
  2. Adverbs of manner describe how characters move and speak, such as "roughly" or "weirdly".
  3. Exclamation marks can be used to show expression and emotion, such as "I was fed up!".
  4. Writing from the girl's perspective allows us to write about the girl's thoughts, such as "Where were we going?".
  5. Two ideas can be joined using the joining word "and".

Common misconception

Pupils may want to use an exclamation mark at the end of every sentence.

Ask pupils to read their writing back with expression and discuss the role of the exclamation mark here.

Keywords

  • Middle - the central part of a story, typically introducing the problem

  • Character - a person or animal in the story

  • Setting - where the story takes place

  • Suspense - the feeling of excited expectation about something that is going to happen

  • Perspective - one particular view of something

During the first learning cycle, provide pupils with sufficient opportunity to orally rehearse their sentences so they are best prepared to write as independently as possible.
