In writing this half term we have used the short film clip ‘The Piano’ to write narrative retells.

In the first paragraph of our retell we focused on describing the character both directly and indirectly before moving on to using a range of devices to build up an image of a battlefield setting for the reader.

The children spent lots of time immersing themselves into the setting and thinking about what could be seen, heard, touched ect and built up sentences to best describe the setting thinking about the effective they wanted to have on the reader. We also included a flashback in this piece for the first time.

The children will be recording themselves reading their finished piece which will go onto the website and dojo at the beginning of next half term.
