Year six have been focussing on newspaper reports In recent weeks; we have been writing about a recent volcanic eruption which happened on the island of Hawaii and devastated both the inhabitants and the environment surrounding it.
Year five have also been completing newspaper articles, making sure they contain the suitable features to sound like young, budding reporters! Their report was based on the tragic death of a solider during World War I, which is both incredibly emotive and moving.
Year four have completed a week of persuasive writing; they have been using the appropriate features in order to persuade the reader to purchase an invention which they had created! Sounds very exciting – I may have to purchase one myself!
Year three were writing a set of instructions based on their book ‘Where the Wild Things Are’. They were writing their instructions based on how to hunt your own wild thing! As well as creating some amazing writing, we now know how to track one for ourselves!
In year two, they have been creating a setting description based on a video clip which they watched in class. In the clip the main character (Zarah) lives in an African village and the children were describing what it looks like especially when comparing it to where they live. Thank you year two, we now have more details to help us imagine what Africa is like!
Year one have been on an adventure which took them out of this world! The children were lucky enough to visit the moon and when they returned, they kept us all up-to-date with what it is like by describing it for us – thanks year one!
In our reception classes, they have been practising how to write their names accurately! They have been using their phonic sounds and their understanding of letters to write their own names and some have even been writing thank you notes for teachers around the school which they would like to thank!
