Stretching a sentence

I am learning to add adjectives, nouns, verbs, and adverbs to adapt a simple sentence.

I know I can do it when I can write a detailed sentence using adjectives, nouns, verbs, and adverbs.

Yesterday you had a go at stretching a simple sentence to become a longer, descriptive sentence.

Watch the following video to learn more about how to do this:

Independent Task

Today you will continue to work on stretching a sentence, this time you will create the simple sentence yourself.

Reflect on something you have done today that can be used as your beginning sentence. For example:

I had breakfast.

I played with my sister.

I watched a movie.

From your simple sentence you will repeat the same process as yesterday.

Writing the sentence, a further 4 times with each sentence containing an extra detail (a noun, a verb, an adjective and an adverb).
