Lesson 14

Today, we explored VCOP, the 4 elements we need to pay attention to when we want to improve our writing (Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation), in more depth.

We looked at excerpts from 4 different adventure stories and identified VCOP elements in each. We then took a look at common adjectives and brainstormed synonyms and tried to order them according from most to least. Here’s a little video on adjectives.

Finally, we discussed imagination and ideas for stories using the question ‘What if…’.


  • Spelling List 11
  • ‘What if…’ sheet (10 sentences)
  • Read Chapter 3 of the Worst Witch and write a character description of Maud or Mildred. What do they look like? What are their likes and dislikes? What are they bad/good at?
