Creative Writing

We spend a lot of time in lessons learning to analyse the choices and skills of some of the best writers in the English Language. However, we forget that you all use these same skills every day; when you tell your families about something that happened to you at school, then you want to emphasise something, when you talk to your friends. Now we will learn how to transfer these talents to the page. This term you will learn and practise creative writing skills.

Term 5 

This term you are going to be exploring poetry from around the world. During your three hours of English per week you should:

  1. Complete three lessons in your booklet (per week)
  2. Use your term 5 knowledge organiser to learn and revisit key concepts and vocabulary. Make sure that you are testing yourself regularly.
  3. Use your knowledge organisers from earlier in the year to revise key concepts and vocabulary. It is important that you do not forget what you have already learnt.

READING- You should be aiming for a MINIMUM of 30 minutes of reading per day. Mrs Sherry has uploaded a number of ways that you can access texts if you are running low at home.

Reading is one of the most important things you can do whilst you are at home. It will:

  1. Help you to relax and reduce anxiety
  2. Widen your vocabulary
  3. Help with the accuracy of your writing
  4. Broaden your imagination
  5. Keep you entertained!
