Extending Sentences!

Date: 12th May 2021 @ 7:52pm

This week in our Reading into Writing sessions we have been using 'and' and because to extend our sentences. We began the week by finding and building sentences containing 'and' and worked on writing the remainder of a given sentence. For example, 'I went to the shop and...'

"bought some sweets!"

"saw my friends!"

"my mum bought some milk."

We then linked our learning to the story 'Aliens Love Underpants.' We described different aliens from the story, using and to extend our sentences and connect two ideas.

We have also then began to talk about using commas! Miss Kay showed us a sentence she had written about the aliens, but it had too many 'ands!' We learnt how to use commas in a list, and we will continue our work with this.
