Form 5 jump straight in!16 Sep 2021
It's been great to be back, and we have loved starting Form 5.
Form 5 have jumped straight into storytelling in English this week and the creative juices have been flowing nicely. We talked at length about the importance of interesting characters, and the children created their own - giving them a distinctive appearance, personality and back-story.
Then it was time to put their characters into a story. They imagined a magical box had been discovered and came up with some excellent ideas about its function. Perhaps it opened and created a portal to a different world? Perhaps there was a mysterious key inside, or a map? Perhaps it contained a poorly unicorn who had lost its horn?
Everyone concentrated on a clear structure, and wrote entertaining, descriptive and exciting stories - all the while, working hard towards achieving their Pen Licences.
