Begin by completing the SPaG starter for your year group below.
Now follow the link below to the BBC Bitesize and follow it down to the bottom of the section on fact and opinion.  You do not need to do the practise section at the bottom.

Now you are going to continue with your newspaper article about Tranio and Livia in Pompeii.  Make sure you include lots of facts (from the story) and some opinions (quotes from Tranio and Livia, perhaps).  Remember to write in the past tense and third person, and separate the different events into paragraphs.  Don't forget to follow your plan from last Thursday.


Send in pictures of your writing after today's lesson if you can and then Mrs Jeffery or Miss Tuplin can give you some pointers on what you can do to improve your article.  We don't expect you to finish the whole thing today (tomorrow's lesson will be to finish and edit your article) so make sure you don't spend more than the 1 hour English lesson writing it today.
