We now have concluded our learning based on the story of Kensuke's Kingdom. The children have written a book review, that we have then spent time editing and improving to ensure it is the best work that we could create. The children are looking forward to presenting these so that they can go on display in the library.
In English, we will be developing our writing skills using the book 'Kensuke's Kingdom' as a tool. We will be using book to provide inspiration for our vocabulary choices, to provide cohesion in our sentences and paragraphs and developing our understanding of verbs, adverbs and punctuation. The aim of our writing is to develop a new chapter for Kensuke's Kingdom, using the previous text as a guideline.
The children have been working really hard to develop their vocabulary. We have looked at different setting descriptions, analysed effective vocabulary and uplevelled previous work. We then applied our new vocabulary to create a descriptive piece of writing.
