Express Yourself!

This half term we have had a wonderful time exploring different types of poetry. We have been immersed in rich vocabulary and  enjoyed studying the work of lots of famous poets. We 'magpied' some of their ideas to help us create our own brilliant poems. Please take a look at our excellent writing in the book below.

Each class has learnt how to persuade a reader by using compelling vocabulary to incite and excite.  They have learnt the typical structures of advertisements to create their own persuasive literature. Take a look at the topic book below to see how we did this!

This half term we have become budding authors by experimenting with a range of well loved fairy tales! Each class has taken its favourite tale and embellished and improved  what we already know to produce alternative versions. We have also used the typical story structure to create our own fairy tales. Take a look at the topic book below to see how we did this!
