Writing

Thursday 16 May 2024

In Year 3 and 4, we have been building up to writing a narrative about the picture book, Flood:

We have been working hard to include speech in our writing. It is difficult to do and there are lots of key things to remember. We have focussed on the spoken word, adverbial clauses and adding extra detail.

Here’s some snippets from the children…

“We need to make a plan,” announced mum.

– Leo S

Mum considered, as she sat down, “We should put sandbags around our house.”

– Valerie

“What are we going to do? This is so serious!” cried Donna with her head in her hands.

– Elara

“We will come back as soon as the storm is over,” cried mum as she fastened her seatbelt.

– Alba

Dan reassured his family, “We could come back when the storm is done.”

– Beau

Preston asked whilst trying not to look, “Can you be less dramatic?”

– Christian

Alex sighed as he held a box, “I don’t want to leave.”

– Kiara

Frankie shouted, banging his hands on the table, “I don’t want to leave!”

– Lily
