WARM UP

 

Have a go at these grammar and punctuation challenges in your writing books:

WALT: Use fronted adverbials

 

 

Using this picture and the adjectives word bank from yesterday, today we are going to create sentences using fronted adverbials. 

 

A fronted adverbial is a word or a phrase which adds extra detail to the main clause sentence. It can tell the reader where, when or how something is taking place. 

 

We are going to concentrate on using fronted adverbials for where.

 

Here are some examples of fronted adverbials that you might like to use. Try and write two sentences for each category: ships, cliffs and weather. There might be some that you could add more to.

 

Remember, this is a tense, spooky tale so your vocabulary choices should reflect this! 

 

Challenge yourself to include an expanded noun phrase into some of your sentences. This will create a better scene.

 

For example:

Below the mist, the bare skeletons of long forgotten ships lay silently.
