The children created a persuasive speech to encourage people to save the tigers.

In English, the children designed and wrote a poster for any humans that were not on The Island yet. They needed to persuade them to travel to The Island and help them navigate their way. The children included some key features: Commands, statements, questions and exclamations - Prepositions/ prepositional phrases (to help with the geography of the island)

We began a new book today, 'The Last Wild'. We looked at items and images related to the new text. The children then made predictions using modal verbs.

Year 6 visited the Imperial War Museum. We made special documentaries (coming soon!) with SMASH TV all about WW1. We got to explore the artefacts and even experience life in the trenches. It was educational experience which we thoroughly enjoyed and we couldn’t have been happier to be on a school trip again.

Roleplay: The children conveyed the different emotions a soldier would/could experience in the trenches. Some of the questions we asked ourselves were: What are you doing? Are you resting? Are you writing a letter home? The children were asked to consider how they would show their thoughts and feelings without speech.

As a hook to our new learning in English and Topic, Year 6 got to experience life in the trenches. After completing their set missions, they looked at a range of sources and discussed their prior knowledge of WW1.
