Writing Showcase

Year 6

Year 6 have produced some excellent writing this term. Here are a couple of examples of a diary entry and a letter from an evacuee. The children are confident to demonstrate a variety of sentence openers, a wide range of punctuation and vivid and precise vocabulary. The children have also worked hard on using colloquial language, detailed setting descriptions and a sense of first-person feelings.

These pieces of writing demonstrate a high level of vocabulary and empathy with characterisation, which in turn lead to a natural and authentic feel.



Year 5 

The children in year 5 have been working hard on creating powerful suspense stories. They were focussing on speech, interesting vocabulary and using a variety of sentence structures. I am sure you will agree they have achieved on all levels, with some budding authors emerging too! 



Year 4

The children in Badgers and Squirrels have made a fantastic start with their writing this year. They have been reflecting on their proudest moments in their lives so far and have been concentrating on using emotive words and phrases to help engage the reader.
