During this writing journey our topic was 'Craig yr Hesg Quarry'. We wrote persuasive letters to RCT about the expansion of the quarry near our school! We included our opinions of this taking over our local area. All letters were sent to RCT council! Here are some of them!
Throughout this journey we wrote our own Weather Reports for Spain. We
wrote our own scripts and gathered lots of research on Spain and what weather reports are! Look below to see the weather reports..
Journey's of Writing - 18/19
Remus and Romulus
We have read the myth and legend story of Remus and Romulus. We used the laptops to identify the features of a myth and legend story. We created our own myth and legend story which included speech, setting descriptions and character descriptions. As the story is quite confusing, we decided as a class we would like to make trailers retelling the story our way...

Last half term we looked at the story Pandora's Box. We were able to understand the story and create word arts on the characters and our first impressions. We then went on to look at different features of a news report in detail. We throughly enjoyed looking at direct, indirect speech and their differences. Finally we created a newspaper article based on the story of Pandora's Box. Some of our headlines:
The children then took on the roles of the characters in the book and interviewed each other! Welcome to 'Greek Box Chat Show' (videos below)
The Girl and The Fox
We are currently looking at a film called The Girl and his Fox. Children are very interested with this film as there is no speaking throughout. The class completed a powerpoint to identify what they thought the characters may have been saying at different points in the film. They then went onto create a feelings graph on how the girl may have been feeling throughout. Our aim at the end of this Journey of Writing will be writing a poem based on the film clip.
