In Year 4, we have been writing stories set in another culture.
This term, we have been looking at stories set in another culture. To start with, we read a story about a family in Sweden and learnt about how they were waiting for the sun. This linked well with a future science topic where we look at seasons around the world. We then read a story about a girl named Lila, who lived in Kenya, and how she was wishing for rain. Through looking at pictures, we came up with some great description using a variety of expanded noun phrases, similes and metaphors. Through reading this book and learning a bit more about Kenya and used this information to help us with our story-telling.
After we wrote our stories, we then used 2 sessions where we edited our writing to make it even better.
Have a look at some of our writing.
We look forward to our next piece of writing, where we will be writing a persuasive advert on an invention.
