Good Morning Year 6. All your Thursday home learning activities can be found right here!

Writing Task: Discussion Text

Today is the final day on this piece of writing. You are so close to being finished. Your session today is all about editing. This is a key skill and I know that you all enjoy editing so much!


The final edit

To do this effectively, you need to ensure that you edit two more times to focus upon different features.


Remember re-reading aloud is vital - you have to know what it sounds like in the real world! See if can enlist someone in your family to listen and offer suggests as you read it.


Edit two: grammar and punctuation

  • Tense: make sure that you have kept to the same tense throughout.
  • Have you shown off your great punctuation skills? You have everything at your disposal - commas, brackets, colons and semi-colons.


Edit three: spellings

  • Read through backwards to check for these, they might be easier to spot. Spell checkers are, as ever, a good idea to use.


Once you have done this, you should be finished! We would love to see your work. If you would like to please email them to Miss Cappella and/or Mr English. We can’t wait to read your thoughts on this matter.

Great examples of your writing!
