Cracking collaboration

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

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.  

Teacher revelations!

Year 6 have been crafting poems about the teachers in our school! We look forward to reading some of them!

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.

Busy with biographies

Year 6 have been busy working on how to write good biographies. Over the last week we have honed our writing skills and we look forward to reading the final pieces!

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.

Script writers in year 6

Some great scripts being produced in year 6 for the ‘year 5 advice video’. 

Super writers in year 6

Year 6 have been creating some great pieces based on a set of pictures by Harris Burdick. They have really enjoyed thinking about how to create effects on the readers.
