The first of two days at Walsgrave Church of England Primary, today with Y6 & Y2 pupils, their teachers & colleagues.
Thank you to Rob Darling, Walsgrave’s Headteacher and Paul Griffin, Head teacher of Clifford Primary for coordinating our two days here with. This day has been a long time in the planning. We are working alongside the schools in The Inspire Federation, today and tomorrow.
Today had an analog emphasis. We set forth, with scribbly sticks, in to the world of words. Joined by 48 Year Six voyagers, we …went virtually nowhere. In a geographical sense that is. In terms of inventiveness, descriptive narrative, and playing with words, we travelled many miles. Our ideas were set free to wander, whilst we stood still, in an intriguing landscape, desperate to move, yet rooted to the spot.
Year Six shared this:
Thank you for taking us under your wings on a wild adventure to the virtual world! We learnt an immense amount through shared laughter and respect. You really helped to clarify the difference between a metaphor and a simile- showing us how they can easily be incorporated in our writing! Mr Walker was inspirational- whether described as a breathing device, snake charmer or musical instrument, he kept us entertained throughout. Stretching our imaginations to a place they have never visited before, your fantasy world and friendly dragonfly helped us write one of the most detailed and adventurous pieces ever!
Thanks again- Year 6!
Well thank YOU year Six. You made the morning very enjoyable. Well done indeed, and thank you for these thoughts.
