Fantastic beasts and Y5/6 made them

Friday 11 January 2019

This week, in our writing lessons, we’ve made up our own Star Wars inspired beasts. After recapping some previous learning earlier in the week (determiners, parenthesis, expanded noun phrases – ask your child to explain each of these terms) we worked in pairs to write a short descriptive paragraph about an animal from a book about Star Wars characters, which was really cool!

Then, we created – using some images from the book as a prompt – our own beasts!

Next week, we’re going to write a non-chronological report based on our beastly creations.

Ask your child about their creature – what could they write about?

Challenge your child by asking them to identify the relative clauses in this news post.
