We have been revising our use of apostrophes over the past few weeks. The words it's and its look almost identical apart from the apostrophe. It's is short for it is or it has whereas its is used when something belongs to it. For example:
The cat loved its new collar. (Belonging)
It's the first day of the summer holidays. (Short for it is)
Use the PowerPoint to explore some more examples.
This week we will be learning how to write a mini-saga. We will be writing a mini-saga based on the well known story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff. A mini-saga provides the main ideas from the story without going into too much detail. A mini-saga can be easily written by following the OBDER pattern. OBDER stands for Opening, Build-Up, Dilemma, Events and Resolution. One sentence is written for each section. You can find more information on how to start each sentence of your mini-saga in the PowerPoint provided.
Before you start, use the video link below to watch the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff.
