Book Week 2016
During the week all classes will be writing their own stories and reading playscripts. Art work will be produced to illustrate the stories and ICT will also be used. The Library will showcase the work that we have done during book week.
We have been learning what a play-script looks like and how to use one. We performed a play in groups to each other - we really enjoyed this.
In addition, we have written a short story based on the book 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Browne. We tried to remember to use capital letters, full stops and connectives in our sentences - just like we learnt when we watched the Quantum Theatre play.
Year 5 Started the week by reading and acting out a sci-fi play called Martian Mama. Some children then wrote their own alien plays. They then read a short sci -fi story and looked at characters and settings. After reading an extract from 'War of the Worlds' the children enjoyed writing their own description of an alien world. They finished the week by planning and writing their own sci-fi short stories.
Year 6 have had great fun writing playscripts for our 'Fairytales with a Twist!' it all kicked off on Monday with a not so innocent Little Red Riding Hood obtaining a new grey fur coat courtesy of our timid wolf! The children created their own twisted fairytale and then acted the plays out. Check out some of our photos on our webpage.
Reception have been reading the fairy tale story 'Jack and the Beanstalk'! They have learnt the story using 'talk for writing' strategies. The children have amazed us by learning lots of phrases from the story such as "fee fi fo fum" as they acted out the story using masks and different props. The children made their own magic potions for the Giant and left him notes explaining what to do with them. It was fabulous independent writing!! Come and look at our floor book in Reception to see what fun we had during book week!
