English

In today's lesson your job is to read the work you have completed this week and edit it. 

 

Your first edit is an E1 edit: 

These are the “little” adjustments or changes. When you read your work look for any incorrect spellings, extra or missed words and any missing punctuation.  

 

Your second edit is an E2 edit:

While you are reading your work you may find sentences that need rewriting because they don't make sense or you decide you could make them better with a change of vocabulary choice. 

 

Your third (and final) edit is an E3 edit: 

This is when you want to add more sentences to develop an idea further. You can choose to rewrite the section or add an editing flap - an extra piece of paper that you stick onto your writing to show where the additional sentence has been added to your work.

 

Remember, we are still new to editing our work in this way, so don't worry about it, just give it a go. I know you have been sending your plot points in over the week but it would be great to see all of your writing in one place! If you could take a photo of your completed work that would be great. 

 

Look forward to seeing your masterpieces later.heart

I found a short animation of our story, have a look.

Maybe you would like to illustrate your book. The video below refers to a different book but the author is the same - Oliver Jeffers. In this video he is showing you how he illustrates his characters.
