Weeks 3 & 4
We are now looking at fiction writing, with the story of The Black Hat by Maia Walczak as our starting point. Through this unit we have looked at onomatopoeia, stories which build suspense & tension and how to use visual mapping to develop plotlines, plus engaging in some drama and oral storytelling work to practise our speaking and listening skills.
Weeks 1 & 2
To begin our English learning this term, we studied journalistic writing and news reports, with a link to our topic of animal planet. After practising skills involving writing headings, researching and summarising effectively, we created articles all about animals of our choosing. Here are some photos of a few examples!
