Diary recordings and word investigations in Y6

Home » News » Diary reading and word investigation in Y6

This week, we began by editing our diary entries to correct and improve them. Once we were happy with our final editions, we partnered up and recorded them for study work, making sure we used lots of expression and intonation to bring our writing to life.

For our next piece of study work, we will write a letter to the people of the planet as though we are Earth herself. With this in mind, we read examples of 'letters from Earth'. We gathered useful words and phrases, and sorted them into the categories: emotive language, descriptive language, and subject-specific, technical language. We also found that this letter could be written in various styles -some were chatty and friendly, some were chatty and bossy, others were formal in their 'voice'. Miss Lake asked us to think about which style we each preferred so that we're ready to make a start on our letters next week.

We continued work on the correct use of commas, and investigated homophones such as dessert and desert, principle and principal, profit and prophet. We found that it was VERY important to use the correct spelling — as the photograph shows! We've spent a lot of time discussing the 'hidden meaning' in words so that we are precise in our choices when we write. We are discovering both the power of word choice, and how interesting a humble word can be! Lots of Year 6 children have a knack for explaining word meanings very succinctly which always impresses me!

We've spent our afternoons completing study work tasks and thoroughly enjoyed being an audience for Key Stage One's Christmas story service this morning. What a fantastic job they did!

Have a great time at the theatre everyone, and enjoy the rest of the week.

Miss Lake
