  • Friday 15 January 2021 YEAR 3 MEET THE AUTHOR Year 3 were thrilled to meet author Kate Claxton this week in our online lessons. We had the opportunity to hear Kate read her first published book "My Mum’s a Tiger" and ask her questions about her job as an author. We got three top tips to becoming a great author and they were: to practise your spelling as much as possible, to start your stories at whichever part of it you are most excited about and build your story from there and to share your work with as many people as you can. We were all very excited to see that we do most of these already in our lessons.

  • Friday 18 December 2020 Marvellous Writers in Meerkats This week, Marvellous Meerkats have spent the week finishing off their ‘Mr Big’ topic for English. During this unit, they have been learning all about a transformational tale text type, where the main character is different at the start compared to the end of the story. More specifically, the children have focused on a number of writers’ tools, such as speech marks, sentences of three, adverbial phrases, adjectives and fronted adverbials, which they have tried to incorporate into their hot write. Mr Leach was so pleased with the hard work, determination and effort that the children have demonstrated throughout this unit. Please take a few moments to look at some great examples of the children’s writing below.
