The Write Stuff

Over the last few weeks you have completed some amazing work around the short animation film, Feast.

 

We did a lot of sentence stacking work around the story from Winston's point of view. We ended up writing a class story. Last week you wrote the story from Dad's point of view without any help.

 

Over the next two days we would like you to write your own version of the story from Winston's point of view. You can use any of the lenses from the Writing Rainbow that we have been using in class. Edit your story by identifying any errors in your work, such as spelling mistakes. Can you identify any words that you found tricky to spell and check them in a dictionary? Read your work aloud and see if you can hear where it might not sound quite right.

 

Please email us a copy of your story so that we can read them!

y5@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

Please add your name and class to the email in the subject line so that we know who the story is from.

 

Thank you to Amanah, Isa and Taim in 5O and Mohammed Hussain Ishaq in 5B for the work that you have already emailed to us!
