In F1 class we have been trying a new scheme called talk for writing. First we looked at our story of the week ‘The Train Ride’ we discussed the pictures and what the children thought was happening, who the characters were and what they could see. We talked about the author and illustrator and what their jobs were. After reading the book and watching a story of it on the interactive whiteboard we made a story map. The children made actions for each sentence in the book and Miss Butterworth recorded them onto the paper.
The afternoon class had a turn at telling the story too, we have lots of new faces in our afternoon class so some were a bit shy but they did a great job! Well done 😊
