Roald Dahl mania

2C have enjoyed reading three Roald Dahl books this term.  image

 

Which is your favourite Roald Dahl book?

Some, others sentences

Some, others sentences are fantastic for persuasive letters. They can put across both points of view in an argument. You can use this in an introduction, or at the beginning of a paragraph before you explain your view.

Here is an example of a some, others sentence:

Some people like football; others just can’t stand it.

Can you complete this some, others sentence about dolphins?

Some people enjoy seeing dolphins in zoos;

Now can you write your own some, others sentence about tigers?

Bilal – Some people enjoy seeing dolphins in zoos; others can’t stand it because they think it’s cruel.

Hannah – Some people enjoy seeing dolphins in zoos; others like seeing playful dolphins in the aquarium.

Inayah – Some people enjoy seeing dolphins in zoos; others like to watch them in the ocean.

Miss Penfold – Some people think tigers are native to Africa; others know the truth!

Isha – Some people think it’s a good thing to keep tigers as pets; others think it’s not because they are dangerous.

Malaika – Some people think tigers should be locked in zoos; others think they should they shoud be free to pounce on the forests of Asia.

Zanira – Some people take tiger bones for medicine; others think it is cruel to do that.

Mariam – Some people think tigers are cute; others disagree because they think they are fierce.

De:De sentences

De:de stands for Description:Detail. This is a great sentence type for improving description. The first part or clause (description) is descriptive, the second clause adds more detail. The two parts are separated by a : which is a colon.

Here is a picture of a Panda, which is one of the world’s most endangered animals.

photo credit: Copanda_ via photopin cc

Here is an example of a de:de sentence we could use to describe this picture:

Pandas have black and white fur: They live in remote parts of China.

Here are some examples of 2C’s De:De sentences.

Giant pandas are black and white: They eat long, thick bamboo. By Malaika

Pandas have black and white fur: Some other pandas have red fur, these are red pandas. by Raniyah

A giant panda is a very lazy animal: It also eats lots of bamboo. By Bilal
