WALT write sentences with expanded noun phrases in them.


Activity one:

Have a look at the powerpoint for today and see if you can choose appropriate adjectives to complete the expanded noun phrases in the sentences given.


Activity two:

Today, I would like you to practise writing sentences which have expanded noun phrases in them.


So today you MUST use a capital letter at the start of your sentence, write words in order, leaves spaces between your words and use a full stop at the end of each sentence. There should also be a verb (action/doing word in your sentences). You must also include an expanded noun phrase in your sentences.
