Being concise and making connections Y6

Home » News » Preparing a summary and the passive voice Y6

Year 6 spent the start of the week writing a summary of Little Red Riding Hood.

After a guided and shared writing session based on a summary of The Three Little Pigs, we set to work on independent writing.

This style of writing is a tricky business. It must be written in the present tense and contain only an outline of the work being summarised. Having spent lots of our writing time so far this year trying hard to develop ideas, it was clear that this task would need a new set of skills.

We worked hard to include examples of the passive voice, and to sum up an entire fairy tale in a few concise paragraphs: finding ways to avoid repetition, to include cohesive devices and to ensure the reader could answer the questions who, what, where, when, why and how.

Our drafts were quite successful but today we spent more time editing and improving our work. It was worth the extra time to ensure we used our great writing skills to best effect.

We've also completed presentation work on stories, researched the circulatory system in more detail, completed SPAG tasks and spelling activities, and shared a whole class reading task. We worked on an activity which would help us to make connections through text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to-world. By doing this, we can make sure we are bringing our own life experiences, our prior reading, and our knowledge of the world to new writing examples. Doing this makes us active (rather than passive) readers.

You've worked hard on reading, writing, grammar and spelling activities again this week Year 6. Well done.

Enjoy the rest of the week.
