It has been non-stop in Year 6 recently we haven’t had time to pause for breath! The children have all been working extremely hard at improving their writing skills both in content and in presentation.
Our learning this term is based around the novel Holes by Louis Sachar. We have been trying to imagine what life would be like for Stanley (the main character) by getting into role. We are only up to Chapter 7 and have done an enormous amount of work!
We created sketches of what we thought ‘Camp Green Lake’ might look like based on evidence that we deduced or inferred from the text.
We created character profiles of Stanley and included more evidence to back up our thinking.
So on went the boiler suits and ‘Camp Green Lake detention center’ welcomed it’s latest inmates!
Camp Green Lake comes with it’s own strict rules so we made some warning posters for our camp! Look at our fantastic joined handwriting too!
It doesn’t stop there though! We have also been creating character profiles of Madame Zeroni using lots of inference and deduction.
