What a Week! /

We’ve had another fantastic week! We are on to our second piece of writing for this term and what excellent writers we’re becoming! Some amazing vocabulary being shared in Class 7 🙂

We have looked closely at verbs, choosing the most appropriate ones for our characters and even acting them out!

Then we had a look at how other authors write an action scene, identifying speech, action and description within passages.

We then began to do some shared writing, using some very technical stuff! Verbs, adverbs, adverbial phrases and even an embedded clause!

I’m very excited to see the drafts and the final pieces!

Sharing is Caring! /

We are at the very exciting stage of our writing piece now, where it all comes together! We’ve all worked extremely hard on our character descriptions for Batman.

Here we are sharing our work with a partner and asking them for advice… Does it make sense? Are my sentences different lengths? Have I used effective vocabulary? Is it organised? Where can I go next?

It always helps to have a fresh pair of eyes look at our writing!

What a fantastic day!

We were given ‘The Twits’ story and asked to create something to write about!  I really loved seeing you all turn yourself in to a TWIT! Your Art work was fantastic!

What did you enjoy most about Roald Dahl day and why?

Here are some Class 7 Twits…

Last week we received a letter from Lego Masters and Channel 4 inviting us to participate in a mini movie making competition. Lego Batman is in trouble and his arch enemy is about to destroy Gotham City! We have to make our set and create a film based on this synopsis. What ideas do you already have?  Who is the enemy? What will your city look like?

It was exciting to see your sets being built this week! I can’t wait to put photos on the blog!

Round up, catch up! Our blog has seemed a little bare recently so here’s what we have been up to over the last few weeks!

This is Class 7 using their ICT skills to create an algorithm during coding.

During Golf week, some of us were able to learn new skills!

Our Science week taught us all about humans, including animals. We had so much fun creating our own poo whilst we learnt all about the digestive system and how it works!

We have worked hard over the last few weeks and we will continue to work just as hard for the final two weeks! 🙂
