It was getting very cold and I wished I’d brought a coat. Suddenly I saw one hanging from a tree branch. However, in order to get the coat, I had to leave the footpath and follow a different route.
Do you think you should go and get the red coat?
I would like you to think about all of the possible reasons for and against you changing your route to get the red coat.
- How the boy is feeling?
- Where the coat is?
- What he’s meant to be doing?
- What could happen?
- What his mother had told him?
Create a table like the one provided below by either drawing it or using a computer.
Think carefully about all of the possible reasons for and against.
- Use capital letters and full stops.
- Use apostrophes for contraction and possession where necessary.
- Use a range of sentence starters instead of using ‘I think that’ and ‘I don’t think that’ for each and every sentence.
- Use conjunctions to expand on your ideas.
- See if you can incorporate some common exception words and make sure that they are spelt correctly.
- Join your handwriting.
- I think that I should go and get the red coat and put it on because I am cold.
- If I doesn’t put on the coat I might catch a cold or become ill.
- I don’t believe that I should get the red coat and put it on because it doesn’t belong to me.
- The coat is hanging on a tree branch therefore, in order to get it down I would need to climb the tree which could be dangerous.
