As many of you may know, the European championships began on the 10th of June. This has been an exciting time for many of you to experience sport being played by different European countries.
On Friday the 17th we excitingly had FUDGE day where Fathers, Uncles, Dads & Grandad’s were warmly welcomed into the classrooms to celebrate Fathers Day. During this time, in Literacy we were writing setting descriptions for a football stadium! The children were given two images as a stimulus.
The work produced by the children was fantastic. Check out just two wonderful pieces of writing below.
LO: I can… describe a setting
- Range of sentence openers
- Different senses (see, hear, feel, taste, smell)
- Descriptive vocab (adjectives and adverbs)
- CHALLENGE: Extended simile
In front of my eyes, I can see a massive pitch perfect for playing football. In the distance, I can hear fans chanting my name. Some were waving flags; others wore hats and other equipment. On the ground, I can feel the soft green grass on my epic trainers. All of a sudden, in my mouth I can taste victory and fear of the other team. I can smell a hot dog stand close by. Suddenly, I can feel grass as green as a leaf on a hot summers day.
Here is another…
In front of my eyes I can see lots and lots of people cheering and waving flags, waiting for us to start the game.
In the distance I can hear bands playing and people chanting.
On the ground, I can touch the freshly cut grass.
Within my mouth, I can taste the chewing gum and the sweat dripping from my forehead.
Can you pick out the S2S?
