Literacy support 4th May
For the first few days this week you will finish your Lego report. As well as focussing on the content, don’t forget to try and make it as eye-catching and engaging as you can. Could you use bubble writing for the title? Will you include images and ‘did you know’ boxes? You might even create a timeline of some of the key events.
Try to achieve the following learning objectives:
- WALT consider the effect vocabulary has on the reader.
- WALT use design and layout features to engage the reader
- WALT summarise our ideas in a concluding paragraph.
- WALT edit and improve our initial ideas
Monday- Re-read what you have written so far and refer back to the plan you created last week. Today you are going to write the next two paragraphs to your report. Remember to include a range of relevant facts and to use synonyms and pronouns to avoid repeating yourself.
Tuesday- Today you are going to start writing the final paragraph to your report. Think carefully about the effect you want this to have on your reader. It is the last thing they will read and so you want it to have an impact. E.g. Today the Lego brand is known the world over. What started with the humble building brick, is now a company which has over 120 shops worldwide….
Now it’s time to proof-read, edit and then publish your report. Re-read it first to check for any spelling mistakes, missing punctuation or missing words. Now have a go at improving some of your vocabulary choices and sentence structures. Look carefully at your sentence openers. Have you included any parenthesis? Could you experiment with a relative clause? Once you are happy with the improvements you have made, copy it up neatly. Remember to think carefully about ways you could make it eye catching:
- Use colours and images
- Include ‘did you know boxes’
- Present each paragraph with an interesting layout
You might even decide to type it on the computer or create a little booklet.
Don’t forget to email a picture of your finished report for our class learning page.
