Extending Sentence To Make Them Interesting

KS2 children need help with writing interesting sentences and extending sentences. Given the choice, most will opt for writing short simple sentences mainly because it is easier. However, when writing, sentences need to be varied in order to keep the readers interest. This means children need to learn how to improve their writing by using better vocabulary and ensuring they are grammatically correct.

Primary school children are expected to achieve a high level of grammar, spelling and punctuation skills before children leave Primary School. These skills are essential in both fiction writing and non-fiction writing.

Practise Makes Perfect

At school, children will be taught and shown ways in which they can make their sentences more interesting. This is an ongoing theme and needs to be practised at school regularly and through homework. With continuous practise, children will begin to automatically think about their vocabulary choice and sentence structure when writing.

How To Improve Your Writing

KS2 children will learn about nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. These are needed when making sentences more interesting and complex.

When children have completed a piece of writing, it is always a good idea to get them into the habit of checking their work to find ways in which they can improve it. This editing habit can be practised by following a few simple steps, which can be turned into a routine, every time they do some writing.

Writing Checklist

  • Does your writing make sense?
  • Have you used the correct punctuation?
  • Have you used adjectives to describe nouns?
  • Have you used adverbs to describe verbs?
  • Have you used a variety on conjunctions to extend your sentences?
  • Have you used a variety of simple, compound and complex sentences?
  • Have you checked your spellings?
  • Can you add anything to your writing to make it sure the reader understands what you are writing about?

"Amazing site just renewed my subscription for the second year. This site is well structured and has helped to assure me that the work we do at home co-ordinates and strengthens the work done at school."

Reena Chohan

"Teach My Kids is a fantastic resource. We use the work sheets to reinforce the Maths and English that our children, James 9 and Katie 8, are learning at school. They are ideal for when we have a spare 10 – 15 minutes, and also give us as parents the opportunity to see how much our kids know!

As and when the work sheets are completed, I log in and tick them as completed, so it’s clear which topics have been covered. I try to do 2 - 4 of worksheets a week and feel that they are of great benefit to both our children.

I would definitely recommend ‘Teach My Kids’, it’s fantastic value for money and if you have any questions or queries these are answered promptly."
