Dilemmas and feelings in Year 3

This week we have been learning techniques to write fantastic dilemmas in our stories.  We have been using words and phrases like ‘Suddenly’ and ‘Just at that moment’.  We have also been learning how to show how a character is feeling rather than just telling.

Here are some samples of our ideas:

TELL: He was sad.

SHOW:

He had a tear in his eye.

He cried in the corner.

He covered his face with his hands.

He ran to his room sobbing.

His lower lip trembled.

We have also been busy collecting data and producing some great bar charts.  We learnt so much about what our favourite fruits, chocolate bars, football players and pets were.

Next week we will be thinking about Year 2 coming to Year 3 and writing and making a video to welcome them.
