Day 11 from the notebook slides
Today you will make a plan (use the document in files to help) for your own holiday brochure. How will you persuade people to visit the castle? What can they do? See? Remember to include expanded noun phrases, the suffix 'est', rhetorical questions, positive language. Some information about what they can see and do.
You can make your own brochure using plain paper or use the template in the slides. Write your headings for your holiday brochure and some pictures of the castle.
Now use you plan to write your holiday brochure. Use your best handwriting, remember capital letters, full stops and conjunctions.
Now go back and read your writing. Can you edit it? Are their any spellings you can correct? Add in more adjectives? Add in conjunctions? Have you missed out anything from your plan?
Practise these Year 1 and 2 spellings, if you know them all can your write them into different sentences? Try painting them, making them out of stones, hiding them around the house, sticking them on post it notes to read around the house. Find them in your reading books. How creative can you be?
