Grammar Focus: Simple Sentences
Over the next couple of weeks, we will be focussing carefully on sentence structure and making sure we can construct a range of different sentence types accurately. Today we will be focussing on writing simple sentences and identifying word classes within them.
**Join me on Zoom at 10am where we will brainstorm some ideas for our writing all together.**
Today's task is to write just 6 simple sentences about the image above. Each sentence should include the following:
- A noun (object)
- 2 adjectives (describing words)
- A verb (a doing word)
- An adverb (describing the verb)
Try to include ambitious vocabulary to make your sentences as interesting as possible. When you have written your 6 sentences, use 4 different colour pens/crayons/highlighters to identify the 4 different word types in your sentences.
Here is an example sentence:
The cracked, faded floorboards creaked eerily.
Greater Depth Writing Challenge
Intimidating, looming shadows danced menacingly all around me.
Intimidating, looming shadows danced in a threatening manner all around me.
By replacing the word menacingly with 'in a threatening manner' it creates a greater sense that the shadows are out to get me or cause me harm.
