Levelling up

During the V.C.O.P session the children improved boring sentences. After choosing two random objects they had to write a sentence and using the pyramid, try to improve it.

If you would like your own pyramid for home here is a link to one to print out.

Notice how the sentences improves

What could you write for this combination?


How about this combination?

I am really pleased with all your work this morning, you created some brilliant sentences with "ly or ly-ing" openers. 
A special mention to Keaton and Olivia.

Here is a game you can try over the weekend.

Let me know how you get on.

Have a great weekend, see you on Monday.

p.s. Don't forget to learn your lines and the song for assembly.

    so fun i liket it.

  3. Dear Mrs Warner,
    What is VCOP?
    I have printed the pyramid with the intention of using it next week in literacy after showing your blog post. Please tell me what the CL means under punctuation? Are there more pyramids?
    Many thanks
    Mrs Davey

    1. Hi Mrs Davey,

      Since September, every class has been working to improve literacy and BIG WRITING is certainly helping us to do this.

      VCOP stands for vocabulary, connectives, openers and punctuation.
      CL means capital letters.

      If you do a google search for BIG WRITING you will find more information.
      Here is a link explaining it in more detail.

      If you do a BIG WRITING search on this blog you will see examples of the work we have done so far.

      Our younger classes do BIG TALK. Here is a link to our Year 1 class

      I hope you find it useful.

      Best wishes,
      Mrs Warner
