To edit a recount

In this lesson, we will look at the purpose of editing and why it is important. Then, we will break the editing checklist into two parts: one that checks for punctuation, spelling and sense; and the other for language choices, sentence types and structure. After we have practised editing, the children will be expected to edit their recounts from the previous lesson as their independent task. This lesson mentions weapons. Please make sure your child is supervised through this lesson.
