Author visits year 5 to give additional inspiration to our pupils
Miss Williamson's literacy class thoroughly enjoyed their morning with author Sarah Knight this morning. She gave up her time to share her work with pupils and inspire them to become writers themselves. Pupils enjoyed every minute of the morning and created their very own characters which they then used to create their own short animation.
Pupils have been working hard using their research gathered to write their persuasive letters in response to an letter sent to school asking for the pupils help! Pupils have written letters persuading the Fairtrade farmers not to chop down the trees to enable them to have more land for farming. Have a look at how they got on, they are fantastic!!
The Yanomami Tribe -Research
In literacy as part of our topic of South America pupils have been using their skimming and scanning skills to gather information about the tribe's appearance, customs, housing and diet. They have then worked on a collaborative document on Hwb to input the information that they have gathered that they will use to help them to create their own information leaflet about the 'Yanomami Tribe'.
