Best Work Gallery – January 2019




Leonie Pixies The Reception class went on their very first school trip to The Planetarium to support all their learning about Space. Leonie wrote an amazing recount of the trip the next day – she remembered so much and tried really hard to write on her own.
Benjamin Elves Year One have been learning about Chinese New Year.  They have also been reading a story called ‘The Magic Paintbrush’.  Ben has done a great job retelling the story; he has used some strong vocabulary and his sentences flow well.
Harriet Unicorns This lovely piece of work is written by Harriet. The writing explains the beginning of a story about the events of the Great Fire of London.  It follows the life of a butcher called Kieran.
George Merpeople This term, we have been reading a book called ‘Vlad and the Great Fire of London’.  As part of our writing, we were focusing on improving our vocabulary when describing a setting. Well done to George for his great writing.
Lyra Phoenix During English lessons the children have been studying the book ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’ by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre.

The children were completing an extended piece of writing over the week to retell the events from a chapter. The writing below is the part where Oliver realises his parents have gone missing and he decides to try and find them. In the meantime, he comes into contact with a talking albatross, Mr Culpeper and a mermaid, Iris. Well done to Lyra for her piece.

Anselm Pegasus In Year 3 we were rounding off our Chocolate topic with a focus on Fairtrade. The children spent time researching the Fairtrade organisation and were then set the task of writing a persuasive letter to the Prime Minister to encourage more U.K shops to stock Fairtrade goods. Anselm has done a fantastic job. ​
Olivia Griffins In Year 4 we were writing a diary entry stating how we felt as a member of Beowulf’s army on their way to fight Grendal, and ultimately save King Hrothgar’s Kingdom. The journey over the North Sea was long and treacherous. The key focus was on the use of fronted adverbials, higher level expanded noun phrases whilst writing in the past tense. Well done to Olivia for her work.
Joel Centaurs In Year 5 we have read the story ‘The Lost Happy Endings’ by Carol Ann Duffy.  This book inspired the children to imitate the style of the author.  The children have been taught many figurative devices such as personification, metaphors and similes.  They have used their senses to build a picture for the reader that will totally engage them. Joel has done this particularly well in this piece.
Gracie Dragons We have been studying the book Stormbreaker by Antony Horowitz. We chose to rewrite a section of the book focusing on developing our figurative language, comparing the junk yard to a forest. Well done to Gracie for her hard work and focus.
