English Spring Term 1

Across the term, Draconis have encountered some incredibly mystical and magical experiences. In English, since the arrival of the ‘All Magic is Banned’ posters from Queen Sychorax (from our focus text of The Wizards of Once by Cressida Cowell), the class have worked fantastically to write newspaper reports about their arrival through Sentence Stacking. Little did they know that, when they returned to school on Monday 29th January after the weekend, they would find their classroom in a mess! The children worked together to investigate the strange goings-on by collecting evidence and gathering quotes from witnesses. The children found a note which explained that magical creatures had CAMPED IN THE CLASS OVER THE WEEKEND whilst fleeing from Queen Sychorax! The children compiled their evidence found across the school and statements from members of staff that had witnessed some mysterious things, and then wrote fantastic, independent newspaper reports that blew us away! Well done Draconis on your super reporting skills and working hard to make sure you ticked off all your success criteria along the way!
