We would like to say well done to Bastian Hernas for earning his bronze certificate. Well done for completing your Mathletics.

Editing our work!

This morning we have been editing our biography we wrote yesterday. I can identify features I have used in my writing by using my self assessment sheet. We know how to spell check our work to ensure we improve our writing. We know we need to make sure my tenses are correct throughput my writing. We are able to take a sentence and improve it by using different features. Do you know what an expanded noun phrase is?

We know the structure of a biography and we know we have to use a range of punctuation. Also we know we need to include complex sentences and structure my paragraphs using TiPToPD. Do you know what TiPToPD is?
