There has been some excellent writing going in Year 2.

In Year 3, we began planning a piece of writing about our favourite dessert. To help us plan, we each chose our favourite dessert and used each of our senses to describe – the look, smell, taste and texture.  We had to think of some alternative synonyms for the adjectives.  Then the best bit of the lesson....we got to eat our chocolate cake or ice cream – we had vanilla, chocolate and raspberry ripple to choose from!
Year 3 have been using their imaginations to create exciting narratives about World War 2. We used our understanding of WW2 to write letters home to our parents as though we were evacuees.We have also used "The Day the Crayons Quit" as inspiration for our own writing. 

In Year 4, we have found some awesome ways to practise our spellings at the beginning of our Literacy lessons. We use scrabble tiles, magnetic letters, whiteboard pens, highlighters and we play hangman too. It is incredibly fun.

Which activity would you choose?

Year 5 have enjoyed reading and learning about the Hobbit. They used drama techniques to enhance their writing and used a variety of ways to practise spellings in order to apply these in their work.
In Year 6, we have explored a range of genres throughout the curriculum. We expanded our knowledge of formal language to write newspaper reports based on the Suffragettes.

In year 1, the children have been writing their own version of the traditional tale 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. They have also taken part in hot seating, where they pretended they are one of the characters from the story and the other children asked them questions.
