Extra! Extra! Teacher Boosts students’ non-fiction writing skills with using newspaper report guidelines, formats and tips!. Our Keen writers this week have been writing up a persuasive holiday article. The session provided a motivating and memorable image to stimulate discussion, before introducing the grammar element. Students have had time to practise using this feature, before undertaking a short writing task to apply what they have learnt in the context of creative writing!
Our Young learners aged 5-6 have been learning all about The Great Fire of London this week!. They listened to an audio and imagined what it would have been like. The children then found out about some facts about his historical event. Did you know that The Great Fire of London happened between 2-5 September in 1666. The fire began in a bakery on Pudding Lane. Before the fire began, there had been a drought in London that lasted for 10 months, so the city was very dry!. Lots of people had houses made from wood and straw which burned easily. Houses were also built very close together. We know what happened during the fire because people back then wrote about it in letters and newspapers – for instance, Samuel Pepys wrote about it in his diary.
Artists who were alive in 1666 painted pictures of the fire afterwards, so we know what it would have looked like if we’d been there too. The class were then inspired and went on to create their own artwork of the Great Fire of London!.
This week Year 6 have enjoyed learning how to tell and read the time in arabic. During the arabic lesson they have been learning:
