This month in English we have been writing to entertain.
We looked at what makes a strong piece of writing and the ingredients we need to write our own chapter in the story we have been focussing on in class, ‘A Journey to the River Sea’.
The children have been very imaginative when writing their own chapters and have included some great language features including fronted adverbials, extended noun phrases, subordinate clauses and lots and lots of detailed writing.
We were lucky enough to see a ‘black beauty’ insect which also lives in rainforests and we used this description as part of our writing. It was amazing to know that this insect is quite rare and we got to see it in real life!
