In English, the children have been writing a narrative to entertain the reader. Their stories are set in Ancient Egypt and they have used a range of techniques in order to make them ‘scary’.
When writing, the children have had to draft and re-draft to improve their stories. In the first draft, the children were able to lose control with their ideas, without focussing on spelling, punctuation and grammar.
In the second draft, they had to edit their work by adding more detail and making their ordinary ideas, extraordinary. We found this very useful as it has shown great progression in the journey towards the final piece.
