WAIL To use adjectives
To use question marks
Success criteria: I can use adjectives to describe my dragon picture
I can use a question mark to write a question about the Egg Box
In this lesson we are being introduced to one of our new texts for this half term 'The Adventures of Egg Box Dragon'. The children will try to visualise what the Egg Box Dragon might look like and use adjectives to describe him. They will then have a short introduction to question marks, think of something they would like to know about the Egg Box Dragon and write it down as a question.
We are introducing the book using a 'slow reveal' and would ask that you don't share the story or any illustrations at this point.
Please email the children's work from this lesson into school - thank you.
