Narrative

The children will be studying a fictional disaster story about an earthquake. This links with our Natural Disaster topic. They will explore events, characters and emotions empathising with characters through role play and other oracy activities. The children will then use the skills they have learnt to write their own disaster story.

 

Newspaper reports

Using natural disasters as a stimulus, the children will read a selection of different newspaper articles on natural disasters e.g earthquakes, tsunamis. The children will take on the role of a reporter and then create their own articles.

 

Explanations

Using natural disasters as a stimulus, the children will research a particular topic. With the information they have gathered, they will analyse the format of explanation texts and then write their own.

 

Poetry

The children will explore the works of a variety of poets, identifying features, writing styles, word choices etc. This will culminate in the children writing and performing their own poems.
