Retelling, reading and responding Y6

Home » News » Retelling, reading and responding Y6

Year 6 have been busy writing their retelling of The Purple Lady by Jamila Gavin to start the week...

As we'd listened to the story, story blocked and produced story maps before half term, it was time to write. First, we worked collaboratively to look at ways to begin the retelling. Once we'd completed a shared writing task, we wrote our own introductions which set the scene and hinted at the story to come.

Then we wrote and wrote and wrote, making sure that speech was used wisely to enhance characterisation and plot, to use clever ellipsis and cohesive devices to thread the story together and make sure the reader could answer key questions and feel satisfied that our story was unfolding as it should. We'll continue with our story retelling next week before we begin our edits. We're trying really hard to use precise words which convey exactly the right meaning and help us to 'show not tell' so that our audience can imagine the scenes for themselves, just as we do when we enjoy a good story.

We've also completed Spag, spelling and reading tasks. We know that some aspects of English grammar are very tricky indeed but we are determined to master them!

Exodus, our class novel, is reaching its climax. Mara has finally come face to face with the cyberfox and he is not at all what she imagined. Will he leave the New World with her or stay to start a revolution and prove that the New World citizens are not beyond hope?

Don't forget to bring your favourite book in on Thursday for World Book Day. It doesn't matter which kind of book (joke, non-fiction, cartoon, poetry), just make sure it's one you feel you can talk about enthusiastically! You might even inspire someone to pick up it up and read it for themselves, just as Maisie has been by ordering Blackberry Blue after reading the story The Purple Lady in class!

Enjoy the rest of the week.
