Jared - Keywords

Jared's put good thought into selecting keywords that are important to him to help summarise himself. His google drawing is pretty clever too.

Key Words - Reading

Everyone has been working really hard to locate keywords in texts they read to summarise the main ideas. To help understand what a keyword is everyone brainstormed keywords about themselves and used these in mini summaries. Esther has summed herself up well!

My Place in the World

6 April 2016 - Over the last few weeks the students have been learning to write in formal report style to present the country of their origin to others. They have had to learn how to write in the third person, include topic sentences and how to write supporting sentences. Their writing has needed to be correctly punctuated and presented in paragraphs. They are now sharing their learning with you and are looking forward to reading your comments!

Poetry by Renee

Renee has used excellent language and descriptive language in her three poems. She has shown she understands just how to use similes to create good effect. Well done!

More Poetry . . .

Charlotte has worked to hard to use descriptive words in her winter themed poetry.

We have started off this term learning to add precise description and language features to poetry. Ruby deserves to be very proud of her writing - it really makes you think!
