Today's lesson sees us planning a letter to Mr Jones, a school teacher from the story. Detective Dog, whose entire class library has disappeared overnight!
We're going to plan a letter explaining to Mr Jones where to find the school books.
If you look at the slides from today's lesson, you can see where I've added words (in red) based on the writer's hints. This is all part of the planning process and now is the time to change and try different ideas before we write it. The more decision making you do now the easier it will be to write in sentences tomorrow. And remember, Mr Turner hasn't written in sentences today, he has only chosen keywords and phrases.
