Today in Literacy we practised rewriting a boring piece of narrative, by combining effective action, character and setting descriptions.
We used precise nouns and adjectives and powerful verbs and adverbs to achieve this. Please can you do the same with this boring piece, describing the scene at The Bookstall.
The boys walked along the London streets. The streets were busy. They were looking for someone. When they found a man they went up to him and stole his handkerchief. The man said, “Stop!” The boys ran away. People followed Oliver. Oliver banged into somebody and fell over. He was caught.
This should be at least 100 words long, please can you post your rewrites as a comment at the end of this post.
Only a couple of days to bring in all your toys, games, books, dvds and CAKES, ready for our big fundraiser of the year - The Bring, Buy and Bake Sale.
Think about how YOU can make a big difference to peoples lives (remember last week's assembly) and give generously.
We want our year group to be a bustling, busy and exciting market place on Wednesday morning. So, grab a bag and fill it with things to sell so we can raise a huge amount for our charity (check with mum and dad that it is ok, too)
Please also bring in a plastic pot (to keep all the money we earn for charity).
