English Autumn term

Persuasive Writing

We started the term by looking at the features of persuasive writing. We used modal verbs, repetition, rhetorical questions, exaggeration, adverbs and included some facts, to persuade Mrs Barbuti to take us on a trip to Disneyland for our BIG WRITE...

 

                                       

 

 All of us did a great job writing the letter-Mrs Cookson put some up on her WOW wall...

 

                                      

One of our favourite topics this half term has been our book study. We have been reading a fantastic book by the American author Louis Sachar called HOLES.

                                                 

It is all about a boy called Stanley Yelnats who is sent to a Young offender detention centre at Camp Green Lake in Texas. We follow his exploits as he meets new friends, digs holes all day long and becomes embroiled in intrigue and danger...

We have all loved reading the story and producing some fantastic work based upon the characters and setting descriptions in the book...

 

  

 

 

 

English this half term from 2nd November

 

This half term we are spending 2 weeks looking at different forms of poetry. Read some poems at home- If you don't have a poetry book you can find lots of poems online...

There are lots of different ypes of poems. We will be looking at Haiku poems, Kennings, Calligrams and performance poems. What is your favourite poem?

 

Mrs Cookson remembers this poem from her childhood. It was written by A.A Milne who also wrote the Winnie the Pooh stories...

One of our favourite poetry books to read in school is this one. It's full of great poems

all about life at school!

                                                    

 

Why not find your favourite poem and bring it into school to read and share with your class!

 Newspaper Reports

Towards the end of this term we have written a Newspaper report based on the Picture book...                       

We wrote these reports in our BIG WRITE books and some children managed to receive their pen licences too! Well done to those children who did a brilliant job of editing and copying up their reports.
