L.O. I am editing my story so far.

Today you are going to be going back through the draft of your suspense paragraphs from yesterday. Take the time to check for spelling, punctuation and grammar errors. Ensure that every sentence contains a feature of descriptive writing which lends itself to suspense writing. You can look at the model paragraph again from yesterday, as well as look through the checklist you can see pictured below. If you need to edit other pieces of writing you have completed in previous lessons, please take this time to do so.

Suspense checklist

Guided Reading

L.O. I am practicing performing my poem.

L.O. I can perform poetry with the right tone and intonation.

Yesterday, you watched Michael Rosen give notes on how to perform a poem. Yesterday, you made notes on how to do this. Today, I would like you to practise performing your poem. Practise it over and over again until you are happy with it. Remember, you need to have different tones of your voice, pitch and pace. If you can, I would really like it if this is videoed and sent into the class email address - remember to ask your parents first! If you are unable to do this, then please send me some evidence to say that you have completed this task instead.

Class story

In school an adult will read to you for approximately 15 minutes a day. We have chosen to read to you Harry Potter, a well known children's story, with Bloomsbury's permission.
