Shared writing: Mystery stories
Mrs Shankland come to observe one of our shared writing sessions. She was very impressed with our fantastic ideas and our vast grammatical knowledge!
Strive for Five:
We are very proud that every member of Class 6 read at least five times every week since the start of a autumn term. As part of their treat, the children got to have a party afternoon including a disco themed bouncy castle in the school hall. It was great fun and we are sure it will help encourage our Year 5/6 pupils to continue to read regularly.
We have been looking at the different features of a newspaper report. We had a go at creating some of our own catchy headlines and introductory paragraphs.
We are now at the 'shared writing' stage of our newspaper report writing topic. Our Class 6 journalists have been working hard at writing a report based on the mysterious disappearance of a girl called Francis Brandywine. There are some super examples of report writing!
