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.
