Year 4 English lesson

We are reading Leaf.

The children are learning how to write their own version of the story.

We have analysed and written our own information report based on a polar bear. 
We have been focusing on the techniques to write a fantastic story setting. We have used a range of writing techniques such as alliteration, repetition and short sharp sentences to build up suspense within our writing.

Spring 2 - Back To School

This term in English we have been reading the book Manfish. We have then planned and written our own invention narrative. 
In English we have been looking at different types of biographies. We have been studying the layout and language used within different examples which will help us when we write our own on Jacques Cousteau. 

We have been looking at different examples of biographies, which has helped us to be able to write our very own biography on Jacques Cousteau. We have researched information about his childhood/personal life, career, awards/ achievements and environmental issues. We had to think about the layout and language we where going to use to write this biography.
