The SPAG focus for this week is expanded noun phrases. The children should already have some knowledge of expanded noun phrases, so the BBC bitesize resource should allow them to recap and build their understanding. The lesson is from the Y4 section of the BBC bitesize website but is appropriate for children working at Y3 level.
There is also a BBC bitesize lesson with a similar focus for children working below Year 3. The worksheet below could be used after the children have completed the bitesize lesson.
For this week's writing task, we would like the children to draw and then describe Stig's cave. The children should aim to write a paragraph at least and use expanded noun phrases in their sentences. Please have a look at the poster for some helpful hints to help the children form their expanded noun phrase sentences. Information about the mild/medium/spicy challenge options can be found on the weekly planning sheet.
