Year 5 - Editing and Improving our Learning

As part of our English, we spent some time working with partners to improve our writing.  First, we proofread our paragraphs, focusing on spelling, punctuation and verb tense.  Once we had gone through and sorted those issues, we then used our ‘critical friend’ to look at how we could edit our writing to include more of the skills we had been learning.  These included relative clauses, dialogue to move the action on, expanded noun phrases, adverbials and post modification.


There was a great buzz of talk for learning across the room and there was definitely some improved writing from all children!


Well done for showing such a mature approach to writing!
