If I were an Angry Bird

Today Year 3 wrote a short story describing what it would be like being an Angry Bird taking their revenge!

We started by writing our short stories using the slow writing technique. Each sentence had a specific rule that we had to follow making us think carefully about HOW we write just as much as what we write. Here were our rules:

slow writing

Once the children had written their sentences they were give time to reflect and try to improve their writing by changing or adding extra detail in red pen.

Once the children were happy with their final efforts. They narrated them over some screenshots of the game using the app iMovie. It is a fantastic way of showcasing their work in a more creative and interesting way. It was also good for children to show their oral reading skills and they thoroughly enjoyed watching their efforts back.

Please watch some of the efforts from class 3A:
