We are going to use the images below to unpack a writing seed on lions in preparation for an information report.
When you unpack a seed you will need to think about the classification, appearance, habitat and behaviour.
After your seed you will need to write a draft that has an introduction/classification (explains what your topic is), body/description (appearance, behaviour and habitat) and conclusion (a personal comment or important piece of information that has not yet been written).
Classification – What is a lion?
Write in sentences (use capital letters and full stops correctly).
Write in paragraphs.
Think about your spelling and use spelling strategies to help you spell difficult words.
Try and use some adjectives and technical words to make your writing more interesting.
A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word, but has a different meaning and is spelt differently.
For example: there/their/they’re
All of these words sound the same but are spelt differently and have a different meaning. It is important we use the correct homophones when we are writing.
Your homework is to write each of the homophones ‘there’, ‘their’ and ‘they’re’ into sentences.
- The car is parked over there.
- The family went and washed their car.
- They’re going to the zoo.
