A REALLY fun day at Eccleston Mere Primary school, St Helens, as part of the Write Club 7 celebration week.
The children in Year 6 really impressed me with some pacey (yet very neat) descriptive narrative which we managed to record as well.
Year 5, in the afternoon were also up for a challenge and we really stretched them with a journey on a rib rumbling rollercoaster ride. They thought up some great, pithy snippets which really caught the feeling of fear and fun to be had on such a trip. Contrasting and powerful vocabulary. A very enjoyable and experimental session which we managed to record into GarageBand alongside a film of the descent!
I may not be able to include everything here at the moment, because internet time is still at a premium, but, thankyou to Deena for scanning a few examples of some of the work done, at great speed, and in first draft, by Year 6.
I will put a link to the audio and film when I can.
