Writing in role

Standard

This week in English we have been learning how to write an emotive diary entry. We drew an emotions graph to understand how Esther, from our class novel, felt and then wrote in role as her character.

Peace evening and art

Standard

Last week, Year 6 held a peace evening to celebrate the fact that Coventry is the city of peace and reconciliation and to commemorate the anniversary of the Blitz in Coventry during World War Two. We discussed the experience of the people of Coventry during the war and created our own circle of light. We created peace symbols and are now using some of these ideas to create a stained glass window to replicate the window in Coventry cathedral that we saw during our trip.

Descriptive writing

Standard

We have been learning to up level our writing by using higher level vocabulary and creating interesting expanded noun phrases. This week, we used a zone of relevance to choose our vocabulary and then created expanded noun phrases by using a word wall to help us build up our ideas. We used these to write our description on the night time beach scene from ‘Letters to the Lighthouse’.
