Chris Malinchak - So Good To Me



Revisit relative clauses.

What is a relative clause?

Where they can be used?

Why would you use one in a sentence?

Complete the activities below:


Watch the first 18 seconds

How is the girl feeling?

Why could she be feeling like this?


Continue watching to 30 seconds- how do her feelings/emotions change?

Write a prediction to show what you think will happen next, aim to include why/how the girls emotions and feelings might also change and why. 

Challenge- Include relative clauses in your prediction. 





Watch the video up to 1 minute 44 seconds. 

What has the girl lost? 

What clues can you use to infer what may have been lost?


Watch until the end of the video

Did you guess what was lost!?


Pause on an image of the video- write a description of the giraffe.

Aim to show, not tell. Describe in as much detail as possible.

Can you include expanded noun phrases, relative clauses and parenthesis?

Success criteria:

I would love to see the build up and your final pieces of writing, I am sure they will be amazing!
