Watch the video first and then try the sheet attached.
L.O. To revise past tense and writing in the 3rd person
SC1. I know how to change my writing from present to past tense.
SC2. I know how to write in the 3rd person.
SC3. I can use the correct pronouns in my writing.
For our 2020 challenge this week we will be writing a newspaper report; which I will discuss more in our 2020 challenge lesson later. Two of the key features of writing a newspaper report are that they are written in the past tense and in 3rd person.
Today I would like you to have a go at correcting some sentences. In your workbooks you will need to change the tense of the sentence from present (e.g. washing) to past tense (e.g. washed). But also change all the sentences to be written in 3rd person. Remember 3rd person is: he, she, they, their, his etc. Here is a link to BBC bitesize incase you need to remind yourself about the 3rd person.
If you are researching news articles on the Internet you may want to do this with adult supervision.
The three happy news stories I found which can start your research are:
1) Villagers knit jumpers to keep elephants warm during near freezing temperatures
2) Trash man builds free library out of 20,000 books he found in bins
3) Toy pirate ship continues journey across Atlantic
