What a wonderful first week back we’ve had!
The week started with an introduction to our class text, Skellig. Year 6 looked at how the author draws the reader in with some excellent character description. In English, the year has started by looking at journalistic writing. We have started by looking at the features of newspaper reports, turning direct speech into reported speech and writing concise introductions. We are looking forward to writing our own newspaper reports next week, which we will add to our blog, so don’t forget to come back and have a look!
Our topic learning started with a date in history – 20th July 1969.
Year 6 were given the challenge of finding out what happened on that day and then presenting the information to a specific audience, Year 1. We are going to visit Key Stage 1 on Monday to tell them what we have learnt. We’ll keep you posted.
