Our first Paragraphs of our Spooky stories for Hothersall lodge

These are the first paragraphs for our spooky stories to read around the campfire in the last night of Hothersall lodge. These are just our first paragraphs but once it is finished it will be around a page and a half. We have been learning about SHAMPOO which stands for: Symbolism/Simile, Hyperbole, Alliteration, Metaphor, Pathetic Fallacy and Onomatopoeia.

Our writing inspired by the children’s game- rock, paper, scissors

This week we have been working hard to develop our writing skills using @Robsmith Literacy Shed's videos of the children's game- Rock, Paper, Scissors. We have been working hard to vary our sentence openers using DADWAVERS- Ask your child what this stands for! Also the next time they write for homework do not allow them to start sentences in the say way every time! We know have this as part of our Year Six writing toolkit- something that they can take with them to highschool and the wider world.

Our Paul Cookson inspired poems!

The 1000 year old boy new learning!
