Home Blogging Challenge – Leave your entry as a reply…

This half term, we are holding a special blogging challenge that will give children a chance to show their fantastic story writing skills. The challenge is to create a story based on the picture above. Children could write about who lives in these magical woods, what adventures they might go on in the magical woods or any other ideas that the children might have.

 

Please post your entries on to the class blogs. If this is not possible written entries can be handed to your child’s class teacher. The deadline for the challenge is: Thursday 30th November. We are looking forward to reading your ideas. We will be choosing a winner from the Year 1 and 2 blogging challenge who will receive a trophy and prize. The winner will also have their writing published in the school newsletter! There are also several prizes available for runners up.

Please make sure you include your name!

Good Luck!

Moana vs Maui

This week we have been learning what makes a good sentence. We learnt the sentence high five to help us remember what we must include.

At the start of the week, we watched a clip from Pixar’s Moana. Then, we wrote sentences to describe Moana and her friend Maui. We also tried to use the conjunctions to compare the two characters.
