Talk For Writing

We are starting our next 'Talk for Writing' story this week. 

It is a journey story that visits different types of environments throughout. We will be looking at these different environments within class, for example, the desert, the jungle, cities and polar regions.


We will upload the story and maps as we do them for you to join in at home.

TfW term 3: No Place Like Home

Monday:  we wrote whole class poems based on pictures of different environments.

Please see the pictures and examples below. Your child could have a go at saying their own sentence for the poem.


Tuesday: We talked about going on a journey. The children imagined the journey they were going on and how they were going to get there. We used the language, First, next, after that and finally.

For example, "I am going to Legoland. First I will pack my bag for the day. Next I will get in my car and drive along the motorway. After that I will play 'I Spy' with my brother. Finally I will go into Legoland and have lots of fun."

Wednesday - Today we had a visitor in class. He is a polar bear called George. The children love him and are taking good care of him. We then started to tell and map our story. Please see the photos and video below to support at home.
