Building up/scaffolding writing. Modelling Creative writing  Key Stage 2 Year 3 Year 4 grammar.

Building up/scaffolding writing. Modelling Creative writing Key Stage 2 Year 3 Year 4 grammar.

Hi, This resource is great for whole lessons. You can model writing a sustained piece and structure how to add depth and creativity to a paragraph/short/long piece of writing. I've played around with how I use this presentation, here are some suggestions, and if you find better ways then please share your good practice. 1. Print slides and allow children to use as prompts for writing about a stimulus. 2. Show children stimulus and then do some talk for writing, than ask them to write sentence/paragraph 1 and then share with class. Repeat process for all 6 sentence types. 3. Print the slides and cut the strips up. Allow children to mix and match to create different structures. I really hope that this resource is useful. Many thanks

Set out as a 5 letter word; FLIRT works with my visual planning HIGH FIVE (it has been suggested in some studies that male brains respond better when remembering things in fives).
