Autumn Term 1

Week 2


This week we have been looking at narratives in our writing and have started with character descriptions. We have been working on show don't tell in our descriptions. We have worked hard to show how a character is feeling or what type of character they are by using vivid description, actions and words without actually saying how they are feeling or if they are a nice or nasty character.


Below are three videos of examples of the childrens work. How do you think the character they are describing is feeling?

Week 1


We have had a fantastic full week back at school and have made such an amazing start with so much hard work already.


In RE we have discussed unconditional love and those who show us unconditional love. Below are examples of posters that we created in class that show examples of what people do for us because they love us.

We always love when children are so engaged with their learning that they want to go home and either do more work on the topic or learn more. We have had that this week after learning about the titanic Enzo has gone home and drawn this fantastic picture of the titanic. I think we can all agree it is a work of art.
