During the Autumn Term, Team CC have been working really hard to combine their knowledge of phonics into writing! The class have been learning phoneme and grapheme correspondence in order to form letters correctly and begin to write CVC words accurately. Fred the Frog has been very helpful in teaching the class to Fred Talk these first. The children have had lots of fun writing Christmas lists and letters to Father Christmas, which they have read aloud in their reading tent!
During the Autumn Term, Team LL developed character descriptions after analysing devices and strategies applied in Stormbreaker. The class wrote a character description of Alex: developing character through – actions, interactions, dialogue and description. Pupils wrote letters to Alex giving reasons for and against taking the mission. As a class, they also developed detailed accounts of Alex’s journey through the Dozmary Mine. The children applied their understanding of strategies identified in the novel to create their own imagery, build suspense and create a sense of pace. Team LL also wrote biographies of Guy Fawkes. As part of our geography topic ‘Extreme Earth’, the children also developed non-chronological reports based on a chosen subject (e.g. volcanoes, tsunamis, hurricanes).
During the Autumn term Team AC have been busy writing in various different forms to Katie Morag. They have considered different genres of writing throughout the term and the styles that these texts have. For instance, they have written a letter to Katie, as well as also creating some descriptive writing about new places linked to her adventures. Non-chronological texts have also been taught which allowed the children to demonstrate their ability to include new geographical vocabulary in an appropriate context.
