Olivia in 6W has received star writer of the week for her super character description of Ebeneezer Scrooge. She used very mature vocabulary and included lots of year group expectations. She also re-drafted her work in parts to up-level sentences to improve on what she had already written. A brilliant piece of work which she should be very proud of.

This week’s Star Writer is Henry in DD. He has spent a lot of time practicing his phonics and is now able to use his learnt sounds to write simple words such as cup, hat, and bell. We used these words to write a list to Santa of some of the things we might like for Christmas. Henry even added his own sound buttons to show how the sounds make up each word! Well done, Henry, we’re proud of you.

Here is the star writer : Jacob from 2J

Jacob has spent lots of time working on a non-chronological report. In it he has written about four festivals we have in the Autumn. He included lots of detail, joining words, lists and a wide range of punctuation. All his capital letters and full stops were in the correctly place and he has been working very hard at trying to join his handwriting. He has also continued his learning at home by writing reports about things that interest him, such as the universe and space! Well done Jacob.

This week’s Star Writer is Holly from 3CM. After studying some of Aesop’s fables, Holly chose to base her fable on the tale of the Ant and the Grasshopper.
