New term but a continued writing focus in Class 6 this term.
We enjoyed our topic of Fairy Tales so much that we’ve decided to continue in to this term too. We ended last term with writing our own version of Little Red Riding Hood and thoroughly enjoyed the freedom of being allowed to alter the ending. Some of us did somewhat overindulge in changes to the close of the story, however much I advised to try and remain true to the tale.
Due to our love of all things fantasy, we are now in the process of planning and drafting our very own fairy tale and will work on these over the next week. Further on in the term, we will move on to a new genre of writing (newspaper reports) but we will keep our fairy tale focus. I am very much looking forward to seeing the class manage the change to writing a fictional report in a non-fiction style – very interesting.
Below are pictures of our wonderful work upon our class display:
I must mention the determined and focused attitude to our assessments that have taken place this week and we are pleased to say they are now finished. We are building our knowledge, skills and confidence ready for the impending SATs tests in May. Although the weeks and days are running down, my belief and pride in Class 6 continues to grow – we’re all making sure that we are excited for the SATs experience not fearful of the experience!
