Key focuses during our writing unit

  • To use a rich vocabulary for effect and include a range of sentence types in longer pieces of writing.
  • Use expanded noun and prepositional phrases.
  • Choose nouns and pronouns for cohesion to avoid repetition.
  • Use paragraphs to organise ideas within the story.
  • Use apostrophes to show possession.
