The Great Fire of London

This half term in English we have been learning to write recounts. We started the topic by learning a recount where a girl called Katie told us all about her day in London. We noticed that a good recount should be written in the past tense and uses time words to help sequence it.

This week we have been working together to apply what we learnt to write a class recount about The Great Fire of London. We worked together to plan the recount using a text map and then practised telling it aloud. Finally we started writing our recounts.

We have been working really hard to sit on our chairs and work quietly when writing. Look how well we have been doing.

Our teachers have been really impressed with how much our writing has improved since September.
