This Friday we are having our first Big Write. We will be writing an information report about an animal of our choice. To help us prepare for the Big Write we will be completing activities based on vocabulary, connectors, openers and punctuation (VCOP) this week. Also you will need to be researching and learning things about your animal. Information about appearance, habitat, behaviour, diet, breeding and life cycles will be very helpful in an informaion report.
One last thing that we will be doing to prepare for the Big Write session will be a Big Talk at home with our families. I will send a note home with suggestions on what to chat about, but essentially you are verbalising your ideas so that you will be able to write about them.
Watch this video with your family to give a clearer idea on how to do the big talk.
