Thursday morning’s literacy lesson took Year 6 out to space with the introduction of Iggy Ispace and his fronted adverbial phrases.
In groups, the children firstly had to build the muddled sentences, working out where the fronted adverbial phrase was as well as what else the sentence was made up of.
Once everyone had built their sentences we could work out what each of the letters in Ispace stands for.
I – ing ending
S – similes
P – prepositions
A – adverbs
C – conjunctions
E – ed ending
We then had a go at writing our own phrases and realised that they could actually change the meaning of the main clause it was being added to. Let’s see if the children remember to use Iggy Ispace next time they are writing.
