The spring term will see Buzzard class focussing heavily on our narrative writing skills. Having already covered a range of genres, including: formal letters, non-chronological reports, poems, diary entries and scripts, we will now move on to some creative writing based around Greek myths. The children will be exploring how to create the perfect story openers, hook a reader in by withholding key information, how to expand noun phrases, expertly use similes and metaphors, describe characters and also experiment with higher level punctuation. Narrative writing is a fantastic way for the children to let their imaginations run wild and I am very much looking forward to sharing the final results with you over the coming months.
