This week’s writer of the week is awarded to Harvey for producing a detailed, in-depth comparison between the Arctic and Antarctic in our geography lesson this week. A great use of high level punctuation too! Well done, Harvey!
Last week, myself and Mrs Tuck introduced a reading competition. The children were given a quote from a book (displayed in our library) and they were encouraged to ‘Guess the Book’ based on the quote. We were inundated with entries! The quote was from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K Rowling.
This week’s winner is Haniya in Pine class. Well done, Haniya!
The competition is running weekly with a new and exciting quote posted every Friday. All ages/year groups are encouraged to take part. Happy guessing!!!
In Redwood this week, our writer of the week goes to Lucy. She has really grasped the use of noun phrases, varied sentence openers and detail. Well done, Lucy!
We were visited by the Bookbus today where some year 6 children had the opportunity to help select new books for our library!
The children were extremely polite and respectful to the Librarian on the bus and chose some exciting and challenging texts for our library.
Over the last two weeks we’ve been writing a variety of genres based on ‘The Dreadful Menace’ poem. Jay’s piece of writing was one of the best pieces of writing completed over the unit. We personified the season winter and used hyperbole to exaggerate it’s power.
Can you spot the variety of challenging vocabulary Jay has used?
Well done Jay!
This weeks writer of the week goes to Tom who has produced a weather warning based on a poem the ‘Dreadful Menace’ which we have been focusing on this week.
His use of figurative language has been amazing!
