We have focused on our story writing in Literacy this week, trying to create really interesting stories to hold readers’ attention. We all started from the same point, the blowing up of Big Ben at the end of the New Year’s countdown (thanks for the idea Charlie)! Pupils then drew up a list of properties which make good writing and aimed to include all of these as they wrote their stories.
Pupils brought home their plans on Thurs evening and have also brought home their stories (some finished, some not!) to share at home this weekend. Those pupils who are not finished are to have their stories finished by Monday and all pupils are to practise reading their finished stories aloud with real expression at home. Pupils have also been asked to get an adults signature at the end of the story to show that they have completed their homework.
Enjoy the weekend!
