Cracking collaboration

Some great collaboration this morning in Year 6 working on understanding the literary devices in The Highwayman.  

Playscripts in Year 4

Today we have been looking at the features of playscripts. We have followed the scripts to learn and perform an act of a play. Each group had their own cast and director.

He’s back! The Highwayman comes to year 6.

Year 6 started to look at the famous poem, ‘The Highwayman’ by Alfred Noyes. They thought of some excellent questions inspired by reading the first two pages.  

Places for pets!

Year 5 and 6 worked with Paul to write this great poem. That’s no place to put a pet!

Brilliant Biographies

Year 6 worked hard this morning writing biographies. They used the plans they had written on their iPads. Look out for some of these on Pobble.

Personification poems in Year 6

Year 6 wrote poems containing personification. Can you spot the personification?  

Some great editing

Year 6 have been finishing their letters today and made some great edits and improvements using their purple pen. They also took inspiration from some of the published pieces on pobble.com. 

Super sharing 

We used airdrop this morning in year 6 so that everyone could refer to a good example of a paragraph plan. It also means we can look at it in the future even when it is not displayed in the classroom. 

Practise makes perfect! 

Year 6 spent sometime this morning rehearsing for the video they are going to make for the year 5s.
