I have been given a week to teach recounts (next week) to Y3. Does anyone have any advice on how long you spend on each objective and how you structure it? I'm thinking of using a writing frame or story boards. They are doing a recount of a play they did last week and here are there objectives: - Identify and make straightforward inferences based on evidence from texts. Identify main purpose of texts. Show awareness of the point of view being presented in a text, and how opinion of author may change and affect comments made. - Read and discuss concepts of fact and opinion - explore issues raised in text and how reader's opinion could be affected by author. - Analyse texts and revise key organisational features and identify conventions. - Create paragraphs to link and group information. - Compose sentences with time connectives and causal if possible. - Begin to use commas to separate phrases and clauses in sentences. - Plan, draft and write recount with both fact and opinion based content. - Signal time, place and sequence by using connectives - use adverbs and conjunctions to establish cohesion between paragraphs. This, to me, it just a load of waffle. How do I create a week's worth of work from this? Feeling very low at the minute...I feel like I have to post on here too often!
