In each lesson we will have our success criteria to follow. The success criteria are what I need to see in your work to see what you are learning whilst at home.

Main task: today you are going to write the resolution of your narrative problem from yesterday. So far you have written an opening, build-up and problem. You have been working very hard at using adjectives and conjunctions, so use them to write expanded noun phrases today.
Remember, your lockdown narrative doesn’t have to be the same as Michelle Robinson’s book. Write it from your own experiences!

Betty’s dad suggested using something that wasn’t paint. He found a blue cereal box and together they cut it up. Next they used a gloopy glue to stick the blue cardboard on Betty’s colourful rainbow. Soon Betty had finished her beautiful rainbow.
