Wonderful Writing Work

Linked to our topic, we have been creating holiday brochures for modern day Egypt. We have learnt so much about what there is to see, do and enjoy and are hopeful that Mrs Preece might take us all on a class trip..

We have been learning about why Armistice Day is recognised and produced some beautiful pieces of writing explaining why poppys are so significant. 

This week, we have written newspaper reports. They are linked to our class text, The Explorer and were written to alert people to the children who have gone missing on the plane. We wrote from the perspective of their parents back at home. 

The pictures below show our drafting process. We annotated a model text and used it as a basis for our own writing. 

We have been writing character descriptions of Con, one of the main characters in our class text, 'The Explorer.' We drew her first to help with what kind of vocabulary to include.

Each week we have chance to write purely for pleasure in our 'Short Burst Write' sessions. Here are some of our final pieces.
