We recently purchased some new writing materials in school, a set of books written by Alan Peat. These books help the children to write exciting sentences, by showing them simple and memorable tricks that make writing more engaging.
So it was delightful to read the stunning work of this Year Five learner, who is clearly imitating the ideas from the book within her own work. In this work, she used a great example of a ‘Last word – first word’ sentence to good effect. It just goes to show how powerful the imitating muscle can be when used well.
These children, from Year Five, have been making links from an Alan Peat sentence book, and using his ideas within their writing.
By imitating the ideas shown to them, they have been able to produce effective pieces of writing.
A pretty wonderful entry on the Powerful Learner Blog right here for everyone, and it’s great to see another child from Reception taking the award. Our youngest children had been writing instructions linked to their firework topic, and the quality of writing producing by this star learner was extremely impressive.
Not only is she now using her phonics skills to sound out key words, which she did ever so impressively, but she sequenced her instructions perfectly making sure everything was in the right order.
It was an excellent piece of writing, I look forward to reading more in the future from this girl, who clearly has a talent for writing.
Have a look at this fantastic rocket made by our Reception children, and then have a look at their delighted faces! They feel extremely proud of their creation, and talked about how well they collaborated to add the detail and make it so huge.
The rocket has now taken pride of place in The Blurb so that all the other children in school can come and see it.
I am delighted to announce our first pupil on the Powerful Learner Blog for this year. Remember, we only add children on this section of the blog for outstanding contributions to school and for excellent demonstrations of learning. This Year Six pupil has been working collaboratively with a group of children from other schools, who have been selected as potential Level 6 writers.
All children produced some stunning efforts, however this young girl’s writing was breathtaking. The use of description, alongside carefully chosen emotive language, was wonderful to read and we felt extremely proud of her. I look forward to reading future pieces of writing.
