We can use describing words

In Reception, children have been learning to write sentences using describing words. The teachers modelled how to write the sentences, then the children had a go for themselves. They were given an object to describe and were then asked to write sentences, independently. Lots of wonderful sentences were written using describing words.  Keep up the good work!

Murder at John Gulson!

Shockwaves were felt throughout Year 6 this morning when the children arrived to find that a murder had taken place in their classrooms! As they entered the class, they found that tables had been turned upside down, pens, pencils and books had been scattered across the floor and the outline of the victim’s body was laid out on the floor.

The children worked very hard to look for clues and piece them together, using their amazing inference and deduction skills to work out what happened. The local police force sent the children a video, asking them to investigate further and file an official police report, which we can’t wait to get writing!
