Today we are going to have a go at some sentence writing. Start by re-watching the beginning of 'Tangled' shown below to refresh your brains of what happened.

Now we are going to have a go at writing a sentence about what we have just watched. There are 3 important things we need to see in your sentence writing. They are:


Capital Letters - These go at the beginning of your sentence as well as at the start of names of people or places


Finger Spaces - There should be at least a fingers widths gap between every word in your sentence


Full Stops - These should be placed at the end of your sentence


Now we have gone over what we need we can begin writing our sentence. Think carefully what happens at the start of the film. Pick a moment that sticks out for you. Before having a go at putting pencil to paper you need to be able to say your sentence clearly out loud. Try this with your grown up. Say your sentence 3 times to them. It is very important you are able to say your sentence before you begin writing it. If you are unsure how to say it then writing it will be very tricky. 

Here are some example sentences below:


Rapunzel has got long golden hair.


The witch sung to the flower.


The queen was sick.


Once they have written their sentences ask them to check whether they have got a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop.


Remember that the children are not expected to spell these words perfectly. They are going to use their phonics that they know so far to sound these words out. Encourage them to use a sound mat shown below to help them. I will also attach both Phase 2 and 3 sound mats below if you would prefer to print them off instead.

The children are all at different stages so please do not worry if some are struggling to write down their sentence. This is a big step for a lot of them. What you can do if they are needing a little support is to write the beginning of a sentence and ask them to finish off the end of it by writing one or two words. After that you can get them to check your sentence for a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop.
