First person Moral Making!
Year 6 have been working on their 'moral' compass as they have been writing first person narratives!
In year 6 this week, we have been looking at writing a moral within a story from the first-person perspective. We read our model text, in which a friend is oblivious to his new fancy lifestyle and makes his friends seem like they don't matter any more. The moral within the story was that you should treat others how you wish to be treated.
We then set out on the task of creating a story that included creating atmosphere using quality descriptions and dialogue that carried the story. The moral we chose was - honesty is always the best policy.
We started by creating our own characters, we decided that it would be based around a friend lying about what they did on their holidays and then getting in trouble, as the friends told adults in fear the child was in trouble. While doing this we kept in mind the literacy curriculum vision:
Be a reader. Be a writer. Be a communicator.
We are moving onto Shakespearian sonnets next! Keep an eye out for the next poet laureate!
