Writing a Recount
We collected lots of information about some of the animals that Ian brought to see us.
We have been busy writing and editing our recounts about the visit from Ian from Crazy Creatures...
We worked hard to write neatly for our best copies…
How are characters portrayed in stories?
We have been listening to lots of stories with a wolf as one of the characters and thinking about the way in which wolves are portrayed by authors in stories.
Writing a narrative
The character of Little Wolf in 'Little Wolf's Book of Badness' is a bit different. He is trying really hard to be bad and earn his Badness Badge.
We used our story mapping skills to plan Little Wolf's quest to get from Cunning College to Broken Tooth Caves to help him earn his badge.
We have been working hard on our sentence structure and trying to vary our sentence openers to make our writing more engaging.
Writing an Information Text
The villagers in fairy stories have strange ideas about Wolves. They do not have accurate information about them.
“They dress up in human clothes and eat little girls in one gulp.”
“They blow down houses to eat the pigs that live inside.’
After looking at how information texts are organised, gathering facts and working on our sentence openings and sentence structure, we wrote information texts for the villagers so that they were better informed.
We read and performed the poem Hurt no Living Thing by Christina Rossetti. Then we tried to create our own poems using the same structure. We thought about alliteration, super adjectives and how the words sounded when we read them out loud.
