Sentences have one idea, fullstops, and capital letters

We have been focusing on what a sentence is. It is very hard to know where to put fullstops and capital letters if you don't really know what a sentence is!! A sentence has one idea in it. So we have been rereading our writing and checking we are enclosing one idea with a capital letter at the start and a fullstop at the end.
Riley made a really good job of his writing the other day and not only wrote proper sentences but also showed his writer's voice as well. Here is his writing about Joe's trip to England...
"Joe is so lucky. He went to England and Paris. Joe went up a castle. The castle was very tall."
