Our new writing outcome is based on the book, The Tin Forest, by Helen Ward
To start our writing journey the children will discuss answers to comprehension questions in groups and create a 'Zone of Relevance' based vocabulary used to describe a forest. They will be writing noun phrases using a determiner, adjective and noun - ask the children if they can remember what these word types are and which colours we associate with these word types. We will be focusing our grammar lessons on adverbs to describe how things are done and adverbs for description. We will also be generating similes to add as our ingredients to our final writing task. Our final writing task will be to create a diary entry (form) to describe (purpose) the forest for a friend who has never been to a forest (audience). We will be sending home a copy of the children's final writing task.
