"We flourish not for our own sake, but so we can look outwards and give."


'Together We Grow: Together We Give' - Ezekiel 47 : 12


Sentence Doctor


WALT: use imaginative description


Today, you are going to become Sentence Doctors and try to improve the sentences that I have written on the attached sheet. We had a go at this at the beginning of the week, so I know that you are going to be experts at it. 


They are perfectly fine sentences but they are not very exciting! What can you add to them to make them sound much better?


Could you add an adjective (describing word)?

What about an adverb? An adverb describes the verb (doing word). They usually end in -ly. For example: quickly, slowly, carefully. 


Here is an example:


The cat sat on the mat.


Here is my improved version:


The enormous, ginger cat comfortably sat on the mat licking his paws. 


Now it's your turn. I can't wait to see what you come up with. 


You can either write on the sheet and stick it in your book or you can write the new sentences directly into your book. If you choose to do this, please make sure that you write the date and WALT too!
