Year 6 Blog

Monday 14th April

Today we have been reading and performing poetry by Ian Serraillier. We have looked at how he uses imagery, suspense and other language effects to capture the spooky elements. We have had a lot of fun with this today and hope to record our efforts soon. Please make sure that you visit our class pages soon.

Today we started to plan the designs for our string puppets. We looked on the internet with a partner to see what we wanted to make, then we printed off five or six pictures of whatever we wanted, after that we drew our chosen design. We then cut out little squares of material for when we were doing the making of our puppets that we wanted to use and stuck them on a peice of paper as samples. We wrote down what material we wanted to use that we didn't allready have on a list.

Some of us were working with Danny the artist all day in the resource area.

Today we had a poet into our school called Paul Cookson. He performed some very funny poems for us in school and worked with our class. We looked at writing some funny poems, as well as looking at writing a poem linked to our mystery stories that we are on going with. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed Paul's workshop. Here are some pictures of him working with our class.
