Reading in Year 6

Love Theme Day

On February 14th 2020, the children took part in a Love Theme workshop where they explored a variety of poetry styles. They discussed common features of poetry like rhyme-schemes, metaphors, similes etc. They then thought about someone who is very important to them and shared their reasons for why they love them so much. The children discussed people like their mum, dad, siblings, grandparents, friends and many more. The children then used what they had discussed as inspiration to write a poem about someone they love. The children were able to take these poems home to share with their loved ones. 

World Book Day 2020

To celebrate World Book Day, the children were able to come to school dressed as their favourite fictional character and share the reasons why it is their favourite. Throughout the day, the year 5 and 6 children completed activities based around the text 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas' as this is what they had been reading leading up to World Book Day. The children worked together to create a 'Boy in the Striped Pyjamas' display by writing poetry inspired by the themes in the text, creating artwork that demonstrated imprisonment, writing setting descriptions and exploring language.
