We were inspired by Ricky Gervais's Flanimals to create our own imaginary creatures. Here are some of our non-chronological reports about them.
As well as non-chronological reports, we also wrote poems about our creatures to experiment with a wide range of poetic devices, including figurative language and vivid description. Here are some of our poems.
River Rhine Tourist Brochure
We have written brochures to persuade families to visit the Middle River Rhine Valley in Germany.
Newspaper Reports based on Tuesday by David Wiesner
We have written Newspaper reports about an invasion of flying frogs (or in one case pigs) over our village, inspired by this wonderful picture book.
Roman History Writing
We concluded our Roman topic by writing about why the Romans invaded Britain and whether they were successful.
We have written our own versions of Escape from Pompeii, linking with our topic, the Dynamic Earth.
Inspired by Anthony Browne's Voices in the Park, we have written our own versions. We used his wonderful illustrations to help us create our own figurative language and to tell the same story through different voices.
The Little Ghost
As part of our topic on Germany, we wanted to hear some German stories. Our class novel has been 'The Little Ghost' by Otifried Preussler and we have also watched the film on which the book is based. In our English work we have been working on narrative fiction. We have retold the story of 'The Little Ghost'. We hope you enjoy reading our work.
The children have been researching the Allgaeu region of southern Germany as part of their topic. They have used a variety of sources to find out information including books, the internet and videos. They have then used the information to produce their own non-chronological reports on Oberstdorf. We hope you enjoy reading them.
A persuasive leaflet
We found out lots of information about Germany and then learnt the features of persuasive writing. Have a look at some of our leaflets and see if we have successfully used the features of persuasive writing.
Stories inspired by 'Katy and the Starry Night,'
As part of our topic on 'Great Artists,' we studied the work of Van Gogh. We read the story, 'Katy and the Starry Night,' and used the text to inspire our own stories where children have adventures in the pictures of Van Gogh.
Have a read of some of our picture books, we hope you enjoy them.
Alma - Stories about a sinister shop
We watched a short film on the Literacy Shed website and were inspired to write suspense stories about a little girl who discovers a rather mysterious doll shop. Read our stories if you dare...
Anglo Saxon Migration Stories
We have been investigating the Anglo-Saxons' migration to Britannia and have created our own migration stories.
After watching a short film, we were inspired to write our own short suspense stories.
