Whole School Writing Week
Our whole school has been working on a piece of writing based on the short film ‘Partly Cloudy’.
Our Nursery children watched the film and decided which ‘cloud animals’ were their favourites. They used paint to print their chosen animals. The Reception children created ‘cloud people’ and wrote about what the characters in the film might have been saying.
Miss Spencer’s class wrote the story together and recorded themselves telling their story as a whole class.
YEARS 1 & 2
The year 1 children verbally retold the story, using actions to remember the order of events. In groups they then ordered pictures of the story and told the story to each other.
YEARS 3 & 4
Years 3 and 4 started by watching the film then making a story plan of the plot. From these plans they practiced their speaking and listening skills by acting out parts of the story.
In the EAL class the children are working on asking a range of open and closed questions. They thought about which questions they might ask the dark cloud if they could meet him.
In 2LA the children took on the roles of characters from the film and improvised a dialogue based on the film.
YEARS 5 & 6
