This week in English, we have continued looking at diary entries. We have written our own diary entries as Lucy from the Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.
We also played a game of 'hot seat' where we thought about whether we believed the witch was actually the White Witch or the Ice Queen?
This week in English, we have been learning about the features of a diary. We have explored the meaning of each feature so we have a better understanding. Then using a diary checklist, we analysed a diary entry ensuring it had all the correct features.
This week, we have continued to look a setting descriptions. The children thought of their own world they would like to walk into through the wardrobe. They then had a go at writing a detailed setting description about their new world. We also had the opportunity to have a Zoom call with Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The children loved hearing about Jeff’s journey writing the book and where his inspiration to write came from.
This week in English, we have began reading our focus text The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. We have been exploring expanded noun phrases and similes to make our writing exciting. We then had a go at writing a first person account of Lucy’s experience entering Narnia for the first time, and wrote a detailed setting description using what we have learnt so far.
This week we have started our new book The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. Before we started reading it, we worked in pairs to analyse the front cover to predict what we think the story might be about.
The children have been making their own instruction leaflets on how to make Stone Age shoes.
