This half term we have been studying the book Ice Palace. The setting for our story is a cold wintery forest. Over the last two weeks the children built up a range of skills to write a setting description for the forest. This included: Using figurative language (similes and metaphors), powerful adjectives and adverbs to describe nouns and verbs and a focus on which tense we would be writing in.
The children produced some fantastic results, which were edited and up levelled, then put up on display in the classroom.
This piece will remain on display all year with their latest piece being added on the other side. This will enable the children to see the journey they are on and how far their writing progresses each time.
Well done year 5!
