We have been working hard with our writing in Year 5 and it is lovely to see how many children are writing at home too. Here is Maggie’s description of the boy, Barney, from our class reader ‘Stig of the Dump’. We were so impressed with her ambitious and creative use of language that there was a spontaneous round of applause when she finished reading it to us!
The setting of Stig’s cave really grabbed our attention. By reading extracts from the story and watching a clip from the TV series, we could begin to imagine being there. This helped us to write some lovely detailed descriptions. In our classroom we have a display showcasing everyone’s writing but here are a few examples.
