Y3 W2 Literacy 12.1.21
In this lesson, you will learn how to build sentences with new vocabulary, using prepositions and adjectives. Prepositions tell us about time, movement or position, and adjectives add description to nouns to create expanded noun phrases. Both of these writing tools help to build a picture in the mind of the reader, making writing expressive and interesting to read. When you build your own sentences, don’t forget to begin them with capital letters and end them using full stops, exclamation marks or question marks. Please also remember to write in your most beautiful handwriting, following x l and y height letters! Y3 Literacy W2 13.1.21
In this lesson, we will be writing a setting description. We will be using the skills we learned yesterday, building sentences which include prepositions and adjectives, to paint a vivid picture in the mind of the reader. Pause the video and use the help sheet as a guide when you complete your writing. Once you have finished, ask an adult at home to email your work to your teachers!
