WB 14.6.21 - English

 

In our English lessons this week, we have been working in groups to create storyboards for our own wildlife documentaries. We then wrote scripts in preparation for filming next week. Take a look at the area of school we are going to use to inspire our widlife documentaries:

WB 7.6.21 - English

 

This week, we have rehearsing for our performance of The Jungle Book. Look out for information about how we will perform our show soon...

WB 24.5.21 - English

 

This week, we wrote our own balanced discussions about whether or not we should use single-use plastic. We practised organising our ideas by having a verbal discussion and using different openers and conjunctions. You can read some of the final drafts of our discussions at: toucan2020.norbridgeblogs.net

WB 17.5.21 - English

 

This week, we have been learning about the different features of balanced discussions. We researched facts about the impact of plastic and we are going to use this information to write our own balanced discussions next week.

WB 10.5.21 - English

 

This week, we have used newspaper and magazine cuttings to create our own free-verse poems by choosing vocabulary creatively. Take a look at some of our brilliant poetry:

WB 3.5.21 - English

 

This week, we have been exploring poetry. We read some examples of free-verse poetry and identified different examples of figurative language within them. Then, we looked at different leaves and used nature to inspire us to write our own free-verse poetry. We worked hard to include different features such as:

  • Similes
  • Metaphors
  • Personification
  • Onomatopoeia

WB 26.4.21 - English

 

This week, we have written diary entries from the perspective of the man in 'The Arrival'. You can read some of our writing by visiting our class blog: toucan2020.norbridgeblogs.net

WB 19.4.21 - English

 

On Monday, we began exploring a new text, The Arrival, by Shuan Tann. This book is a series of wordless images portraying a small family in an impoverished town. At the beginning of the book, we met a man seeking better prospects in an unknown country on the other side of a vast ocean. We engaged in lots of discussion to infer the images.
