Welcome to Monday's Literacy session!
This week we are going to be reading a book called "Look Up" by Nathan Byron.
We are going to be focussing on a new skill! We are going to be learning about alliteration. Alliteration is the repetition of the first sound in a group of words, for example, "I have heard how Hedgehogs hog the hedge" In this sentence, the 'h' is the alliterative sound. We are going to try and improve our writing by including some alliterative words in it, and also remembering to use the correct punctuation.
First of all, you will need to follow the link at the bottom of this page to listen to the beginning of the story.
Try and stop the video at 1:35. We are going to write 2 sentences about this page. We are going to write in the third person - so it will be about the character in the book.
You can see for Monday's session on our writing sheet that we have our 'imagining' lens. (Please see descriptions of lenses below.)
So my first sentence would be;
rocket thinks mae is amazing
Underneath that sentence are 2 more lenses, 1 is punctuation and the other is alliteration. So we now need to write a second sentence that improves our first. We must remember to include correct punctuation (like capital letters, finger spaces and full stops) and also our alliterative words.
So to improve, my second sentence could be;
Rocket thinks Mae is absolutely amazing.
My second sentence has been improved with the use of capital letters and full stops, and alliterative words. Don't forget your finger spaces in your second sentence!
Have a go at your own sentence, what might Rocket be imagining/thinking? Then, can you improve your initial sentence with an alliterative one underneath?
Remember to only complete Monday's section! We will be writing a different sentence every day!
Have fun Year 1, we can't wait to see the sentences that you think of!
