Today the children were given a 'Cold Write'. A cold write is when you have to write a piece without any planning or help from the teacher. Below is a picture of the sheet your child was given. Why not ask them where their story took them?
Monday 2nd December
During today’s English lesson, we peer edited our work. We spent 20 minutes on our partners work and edited it as we read. We then swapped over.
We found that, two heads were better than one and we made our already good pieces of work even better.
Wednesday 27th November
Our new class book is FArTHER.
Today during GPS, we spoke about homophones and why this homophone worked for the book’s title. We then discussed other homophones and came up with our own sentences.
Why not not have a homophone game of your own at home? See who can come up with the best sentence and choose the correct word for the sentence.
We, as a key stage, have started to look at 'Somebody Swallowed Stanley' book
written by Sarah Roberts.
The book is all about plastic pollution and its serious affects on the ocean and the wildlife
who live in it.
We were lucky enough to have Sarah come visit us and talk to us about her job and a naturalist.
She has visited many countries and worked with some of the world's most dangerous animals.
We have started the year with a reading challenge. We are part of District 9, along with 3 other primary school in the area. We have been given My Naughty Little Sister collection to read and enjoy.
As a class, we have chosen to write our very own story, that could be put into the collection.
We have been working very hard and focusing on really powerful adjectives. Each child has created their own ‘naughty sibling’ to write about.
We have thoroughly enjoyed reading these stories and creating our own.
