English - Writing

Thursday 2nd April 2020

I have had lots of wonderful letters in this week that you have written, either by hand or you have copied me in to ones you have emailed to your friend. Thank you to Sophie, Ava, Ben, Alfie and Maiya who all copied me in to the letter they emailed! Excellent work. Give yourself your house points!

Henry is hard at work writing his letter here! The clipboard is a fantastic idea!

Matilda used beautiful, neat presentation to write to Mila!

Sienna wrote an excellent letter that included a range of fronted adverbials!

William produced some stunning handwriting and excellent punctuation in his fabulous letter

Cleo wrote a letter that used conjunctions to help extend her sentences! Great!

I can see that Sophie is correctly using an apostrophes for contraction and she's spending time proof reading to make her work the best it can be! Great idea! 


I hope you have all awarded yourself your housepoints for all your effort!

I have received in some more wonderful pieces of English work. What strategies that we using in class are you using at home?

Cleo has written a beautiful little poem based on her daily walk. That's an amazing idea! 20HP, Cleo! Has anyone else been inspired by your daily exercise to create some descriptive writing? I'm certainly going to think about on my walk today!

Robert and Matilda have produced some really clear plans for thir letters to friends. They understand the purpose of a letter really well. Excellent work, you two! 20HP!

Matilda also did an excellent storyboard based on Chapter 2 of Danny The Champion of the World! 20HP!

I'm continuing to receive in some beautiful writing! I'm so proud of how hard everyone is working on their handwriting and presentation too.

I really love getting through diary sentences. I enjoy hearing about your day so much and this is a lovely way of telling me. Well done to Henry for his fantastic sentences! 30HP! On Monday, can you write me ten sentences telling me about your weekend? 


Matilda has also told me all about her day. Thank you so much! What wonderful writing too! She's used so many adverbs of time! Can you spot them all? 30HP Matilda!

Matilda has been working super hard, because she has also created a storyboard based on chapter two of 'Danny The Champion of The World'! You have been working wonderfully on your home learning, Matilda! Another 30HP!

Sienna has been writing so much I'm surprised her pen hasn't run out! What a fantastic story, Sienna! I can see you've worked hard on including a lot of the criteria we use in class such as coordinating conjunctions, inverted commas and some wonderful powerful verbs! 30HP!

What amazing writers you all are! I'm so happy to receive all you diary entry sentences, door descriptions/stories and more. Well done, everyone! 

Cleo has written a wonderful story. I spotted powerful verbs, conjunctions and expanded noun phrases. Fantastic! I loved how she described the scent of candy floss. I could smell it as I was reading it! 30HP

Henry has been practising his diary sentences and written a story. You've been working so hard. I must say, I adored the opening line of 'This door leads to a monster.' It really made me want to read on, and I had so many questions in my head as a reader! 30HP!


In school yesterday, we wrote our door stories as well! Maiya worked so hard on her one and had some amazing description included. I love how she described 'the bitter, cold air' and the howling wind. It really set the atmosphere! 30 HP, Maiya!

Sophie has been doing extra writing as well, practising her setting descriptions. What a superstar! 30HP!
