Literacy

Exploring characters
Using a range of different extracts, from books such as: Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl and Prince Caspian, we explored characters by investigating and imitating their dialogue. We looked at the way characters speak, their actions and mannerisms as well intonation, register and volume when speaking.
Empathising
Using drama, we empathised with the characters from our new book 'Fallout', which delves into what might have happened if nuclear strikes were used in the Cold War.
Freeze framing
As part of our Literacy, we are focusing on Goodnight Mr Tom - so, we created some freeze frames to gather ideas for different problems Willie (the main character) might face as possible storylines for the next part of the story.
