This term we have been reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. In Literacy, we rewrote our own version of the story changing a few details like swapping turkish delight for skittles or changing Aslan from a lion to an alligator!
Here is the first page of two fantastic stories from Corrine and Archie. They've both made a fantastic start. You'll have to ask them how the story ends...
Corrine's brilliant start to her story - I love that she went back in purple pen and thought about how to improve her writing.
Archie really impressed me with his Narnia story, especially using conjunctions like 'because' and 'when' to create interesting sentences.
Last week we did something a bit different in Literacy. The children were given this image as inspiration and were told to write a story about whatever they liked! We asked them to think about where the keys might lead, what the boy might be doing and how he got there. The children came up with some fantastic ideas and we had a real mix of magical fantasy stories and spooky horror stories!
What kind of story would you have written if you'd seen this picture? Read on to see some of 4Elm's ideas!
First up is a magical tale written by Corrine:
Now we have a fantastic ghost story from Archie!
Next up, we have a super creepy horror story from Kyarra (Don't read it before bedtime!!)
Theo's story features mystical creatures as well as KFC!
Aysima's lovely tale is all about finding family:
And finally, Aaliyah has written a fantastic opener to her fantasy story which is filled with mystery. I can't wait to read the rest!
Woah, did you survive the storm (and the home learning!)?
Thank you for everyone's hard work that you did at home on Storm Day! We just had to share these amazing pieces of artwork that you did about our Egyptian's topic!
Here is Kyarra's fantastic drawing of an Egyptian scene. I love her pharaoh character and the desert animals we can see!
Here is Toby's fab painting, featuring the pyramids and the river Nile! I really like that he's shown the crops along the Nile, as we know how important this river was for Egyptian farming.
Here's Archie's lovely painting of a pyramid. I love the sunset-coloured sky and how you can see the bricks of the pyramid.
Here is Theo's amazing painting using paint pens and a canvas! I love how he's made the pyramids look 3D and his Egyptian mask.
Here is Millie’s fantastic Egyptian painting! I love how she’s shown the weighing of the heart in the afterlife.
Here’s Aaliyah’s amazing painting of the Sphinx! Great work on the colour wash sky.
Here is Isaac’s very detailed Pharaoh drawing. I love the colours he’s chosen and the cute smiley faces!
Here’s Karl’s pyramid drawing. I love how he’s made it look so 3D!
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
