Our Reception pupils have been looking at people who help us in school; they have been speaking to some of these people too! To show their understanding, they have been drawing some of these people and labelling them, it appears we certainly have a talented group of Early Writers - keep up the great work!
Year One have been exploring narratives and their features and are aiming to recreate their own version of Rapunzel by the end of the week by looking at the key characters within the story. I'm sure we will have some amazing creative writing completed by the end of the week.
The pupils in Year Two have been exploring poetry - in particular, Kennings Poems, they have been constructing poems by selecting an animal of their choosing and creating a word bank to aid their poems and attempt to use alliteration to help with the flow. I cannot wait to read some of their poems!
Year Three are looking at persuasive writing this week. They have been discussing how they would persuade someone to buy a banana, a bike or a holiday. Through the later part of the week they have looked at the features of persuasive writing including persuasive adverbs and phrases to promote something.
Pupils across Year Four have been exploring narrative writing this week and have been aiming to recreate their own Anglo-Saxon battle narrative. They will be applying the learning which they were taught last week to enable them to independently create their own narrative.
Year Five have been focusing on newspaper reports and have been working on interviewing characters for both direct and indirect quotes. They will be aiming to create a newspaper report which encompasses two of the characters from their class text: Viking Boy.
The Year Six students have been mixing history into their English lessons and they have been looking at 'The Night of Broken Glass' otherwise known as Kristallnacht. Pupils have been considering how it would have felt to be persecuted during WWII, they have then applied their historical knowledge to the context of diary writing as a child experiencing this persecution.
