What else has everyone been up to?

Year 1

This week we have enjoyed writing about a picture. We thought about all our literacy skills we have learnt so far this year.

We were very lucky to meet a real author who has had several books published. She want our opinion about her new book and we loved giving her feedback! We also had the chance to create some illustrations which she might use in the book! 

 

Year 2

This week Year 2 have written some fantastic diary entries influenced by Samuel Pepys. They traveled back in time to when the Great Fire of London took place.

 

Year 3

As part of Literacy Week Year 3 have written their own stories based on the Anthony Browne book ’The Tunnel’. The children have been working on character profiles and using adjectives, similes, powerful verbs and time connectives to make their writing more interesting. The stories they produced were imaginative and magical.

Also the children have looked at the features of poems and have produced humorous poems using rhyme and alliteration. The children performed these poems in small groups using clear loud voices and actions.

 

Year 4

During this week Year 4 finished writing their fantasy stories. Alongside this they have used their design technology skills to make pop up books to showcase their stories.

 

Year 5

This week, year 5 have been busy writing their own myth! After looking at features of myths and legends, they have designed their own characters. They have thought carefully about descriptions and imagery they could use to describe characters and setting, and looked at ways of up-leveling and improving their writing. Our final myths have really impressed our class teachers; we are hoping to make a year 5 ‘Book of Myths’.

As well as this, they have read a range of sources to create fact files and quizzes for their peers to complete about Sir Edmund Hilary, and written their own video diaries as though they were mountain explorers! This has linked into our ‘Climb Every Mountain’ topic nicely.

They were also lucky enough to participate in a drama workshop with a specialist teacher, and have explored different methods of communication. All in all a very busy week for year 5!

 

Year 6

Over the past few weeks, Year 6 have been looking at fantasy story writing inspired by the animated story - The Dream Giver. They have been focusing on writing skills including adventurous vocabulary choices, fronted adverbials, punctuation, sentence structures and write using cohesive paragraphs. This week they have edited and redrafted their final drafts.  

As well as taking part in a drama workshop, Year 6 have been looking at The Easter Story and have used it to inspire their Easter poems ready for the whole school Easter competition - Good luck to them all!
