A busy week!

19 Nov 2020

This week in Class 4, the children have been working really hard at creating a main character for the narratives that they will be writing next week. They have focused hard on using adjectives and figurative language for description, as well as varying their sentence openers and using single clause sentences. As you will see, the children have also done a great job when editing their work. They complete any editing in purple pen, and we always say, the more purple, the better! It's a great way for the children to engage in the writing process and allows them to make specific alterations that really impact on the quality of the piece of writing. 
Here are some examples...



The children then went on to develop the plot for their stories, thinking about ways in which they can include flashbacks. Their narratives will be set in Roman times, and so they have a lot to think about. To help with this, we have continued to read our class novel 'Escape from Rome,' which follows the nerve-racking quest of Jube, Fronto and Ursula to Britannia. We are really enjoying delving deeper into the story during our guided reading sessions.
We will have some narratives to share with you soon. 

The children are quite rightly very proud of the Roman clay artefacts they made last week; I hope they all made them home in one piece tonight. Here are a few of the finished products.
