Year 6 really enjoyed our workshop with poet Andy Tooze. We enjoyed reading and listening to his poems and were inspired to create and perform our own. We learned lots about the poetry writing process and had lots of fun.
In the Autumn term we enjoyed exploring the Non-Fiction text Shackleton's Journey.
After writing persuasive letters of application, we enjoyed interviewing each other for a place on the Endurance. We asked and answered some fantastic questions relevant to the expedition and the available jobs on board the ship.
We enjoyed using drama techniques such as Freeze Frame, Thought Tracking and Conscience Alley to put ourselves in the shoes of the crew members and other characters to help us when writing in role.
