Writing: Stretch the Sentence

When writing, it is important to include details. This helps you to ‘paint a picture in the mind of your readers. In this activity, you have been given five sentences that do not include details. Your task is to S T R E T C H the sentences by adding details. You can use the questions “Who?”, “What?”, “When?”, “Where?”, “Why?” and “How?” to help you.

Here is an example: Original sentence – The boy played. Stretched sentence – Yesterday, the tall, young boy played basketball at the playground with his friend, Bob.

You can see that the second, stretched sentence adds a lot more details.

**Remember that you are only writing one sentence, not a story. 

1. The dog ran.

2. The girl swam.

3. The man ate.

4. We are staying at home.

5. Learning is fun.

Kia Ora tamariki ma,

I hope all is well in your bubble. It’s the last day of Week 4, it’s FRI-YAY!

I’m grateful to all of you who are staying engaged and interested. Shout out to all of the amazing parents/guardians and families doing everything they can to continue supporting and “teaching” during the lockdown. Please know that you are valued and appreciated. I am so grateful to you and the hard work and dedication you have for your children. This is overwhelming but I know you are all doing the best you can! Feel PROUD!

For today’s tasks, I have set some activities in the seesaw app. Keep exploring and learning. Also, I’m setting up the new reading programme which the school has launched recently, I will send you the details shortly.

I would like you to write 10 words in your book which you have learned from our lessons this week. Make sure you know their spelling and meaning.

This is all for today. Stay safe and enjoy your weekend.

Kia ora everyone,

Welcome to online learning. I hope you are all doing well and safe in your bubbles.

We will continue learning on’Seesaw”. Please complete the assigned tasks in the folder.  I have sent your student log-in codes to parents. Otherwise, have a look at the link below. If you still need help logging onto your accounts, please feel free to email me and I will be able to assist you.

For Writing, you may start a journal and write down all the things you did at home with your parents or guardians. This would be a great time to start writing stories to enter the competition currently taking place at school. You can write a fiction or fantasy story, fairytale, or animal. Have fun writing.

For Maths, carry on practising your multiplication table.
