Writing in Year 6

Home » News » Writing in Year 6

Year 6, you have worked your writing socks off this week!

We followed up role play and story mapping from last week with a mammoth writing task on Monday and today.

First, we worked on an activity about punctuating speech. There is so much to remember! Once we'd recapped this important skill, we set to work, and spent much of Monday morning writing our own version of Little Red Riding Hood.

We followed this up with a grammar activity about conjunctions. Can you remember those which are coordinating conjunctions and those which are subordinating? The acronym FANBOYS should help jog your memory.

In Science, we produced labelled diagrams of the circulatory system to remind us of key vocabulary, and how the heart and lungs work together.

By Tuesday morning, Miss Lake had enjoyed a very thorough read of our story drafts, and there were some key learning points which we had to address: The rules for punctuating and setting out speech, the rules of paragraphing, and how — by adding extra bits of information and challenging ourselves to find more precise words — we could dramatically improve the characterisation and power of our writing.

After listening carefully to these reminders, we edited our work thoroughly.

I am so impressed by the determination and resilience you have shown with this week's writing, Year 6. You have all worked hard to raise your writing to new levels. What a great job! Some children shared their writing with Mrs Casserley and Year 2. Feedback was great and shows you can entertain an audience with the power of your words.

Our spelling workshop was lots of fun today. How on earth did cake feature so highly on a task about words ending — ence? Thanks, Sam, for giving us a great way to remember this lesson!

Some children were invited to take part in a football tournament this morning. Whether you progressed to the next stage or not, we're proud of your determination and great attitude. Thank you for representing our school so well, and good luck to those who won and move on to the next round.

I hope you keep up the great work for the rest of the week everyone.

Miss Lake
