28 Feb

This week’s home learning task is to complete either the 100 Word or 5 Sentence Challenge. You can add your response to the blog as a comment, or you can write it in your book.

The 100 Word Challenge prompt for this week is quite a simple one. It is:

…the car stopped suddenly…

Make sure you keep to the 100 word limit and do go and visit at least 2 other pieces from different schools on the 100 Word blog.]

The 5 Sentence Challenge prompt is a picture. Try to write 5 interesting sentences about the image and see if you can vary the word you start the sentence with.

    A long time ago lived a bully named princess.She thought that her name was what she was.Everyone was afraid of her because her tantrums ended up with a hole in the wall and someone bleeding.She became so mean that she charged at the teacher in lessons she didn’t like and the teacher once got sent to hospital with a broken hip.On that day a kid said wow and princess punched him in the tummy then he said ow painfully.Next thing was the kid got picked up early.One day she turned into a nice girl.

      An interesting piece Clara.

      Star: I like the way the girl saw the error of her ways.
      Wish: make sure you check through for punctuation and capitals. Sometimes you miss them out.
      Star: the words tantrum and painfully are good word choices.

    One day in Bushling Town Maisy a girl gave some news that cars had been invented.My mum wanted one but she said she wanted it to be cheap, so she bought a cheap one. She drove the car home, as she got on the drive the car stopped suddenly and we got out and went inside .I hugged Dad and snuggled down to watch T V.After 4 hours T V it was 8 oo pm so i had to go to bed.I didn’t get to sleep till 12.00 o’ clock.I was exhausted the next morning and wanted to fall asleep.

      Great writing Clara. I like your use of commas to add an extra part to the sentence. Well done.

      Great writing Billy. I like the ideas and especially the way you varied your sentence starts! Remember those capital letters.

      Well done Hannah,

      Star: I like your use of finally to link the last section of the story to the previous sentence.
      Wish: Try to vary your sentences, don’t over use we….. You could use a character name, or start a sentence with some speech or an adverb instead.
      Star: Using Iona is a great choice of name. It makes her sound interesting.

    The 100 Word Challenge
    The car stopped suddenly … there in front of them was an amazing glowing white unicorn. Where could it have come from? Maybe the new girl who had just moved in down the street or the mean girl called Lidia in my class. Who knows? I think the new girl is the owner of this magical unicorn because she keeps looking out the window in class like she wanted school to be over so she could go home and see something or someone. I decided that at the end of the day I would follow her and find out more.

      Well done Sophie.

      Star: I like the way you used the prompt at the start to get action happening straight away.
      Wish: Make sure you keep the same tense within each sentence.
      Star: Using rhetorical questions like you have really draws in the reader. Great work.
