Writing for a younger audience.

Over the last few weeks Year 6 have been looking at writing for a younger audience. We read different tales written by Beatrix Potter, studied the format of them and then wrote our own stories in the style of the author, as well as this the class painted watercolour pictures of their stories. To finish off the project the stories were made into books.

Year 1 were the audience, we had a lovely story time on Friday afternoon, everyone had a great time listening to four different adventures.

Visitors in Reception class

Over the last few weeks the Reception children have been sharing their classroom with some very special visitors. To link with the story ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ the class received a gift of some very small caterpillars so that they could watch their incredible journey. It sparked many conversations and helped the children to produce some lovely written work.

When the day finally came to let the butterflies go the children had many words of wisdom to offer them and had lots of great ideas about what they might see on their new adventures.

Screenshot 2018-05-24 at 21.20.16What a fantastic sports day we’ve had! Beautiful weather, great sportsmanship and a very enjoyable picnic. Well done to all of the children who gave it their all and had a great time. Special mention needs to go to Mr Coppack for doing such a good job of organising the day.
