Talk for Writing

In our English lesson today, we began learning a section of 'Ripley's Mighty Machines' written by Ian Graham. Using our story map (a visual representation of a section of text which uses images to symbolise words), we thought about actions that could represent the words in the text. First we practised actions in small groups before coming together and sharing our ideas for the actions. Finally, we agreed on our favourite actions and practised them as a class. We are using this section of text to learn about its structure and the style of the writing. In particular, we are learning how to write relative clauses, using relative pronouns to introduce them.
