Lesson 2

WALT: Write a caption sentence


Today, we are going to be looking at a picture from 'Traction Man is Here' by Mini Grey and our own caption to go with it.


First, let's remind ourselves of the story. Look at the power point below with a grown up.

Now, we are going to write our caption.


What is a caption?

A caption is a sentence that describes a picture.


For example,

A cat in a hat.


The sentence describes exactly what is happening in the picture.


Now its your turn, look at the picture below and discuss what is happening in the picture with your grown up.



Decide what sentence you're going to write. Say it out loud.


Now, say each word slowly, chopping it up into sounds to help you sound out the words.


Reread your sentence to check it.


Have you remembered your capital letter, finger spaces and full stops?
