Working wall - ready to support writing
Our working wall is building up nicely. On it are all aspects of writing we have been working on so that we can use it to support us when we write our own beast legends next week.
As you can see, we have been learning how to use language to create effects through the use of similes, exaggeration and “ show not tell” descriptions of feelings. We have also studied how fronted adverbials can change emphasis in our sentences and how prepositions can add more detail and interest.
We know that editing our writing is a very important step to producing the most creative and interesting work we possibly can. We are learning the skills to edit our own work carefully but we are also learning to support each other by editing in pairs.
