Year 3 get inspiration for their writing...

This week, Year 3 have been planning their own traditional tales. We wanted to share with you some of the ways we have been inspired to write more creatively.

Merlin visited us in class and the children were asked to write an exciting sentence about him. It had to include adjectives but also could include similes and interesting openers too!

On Friday, the children then played some literacy games designed to help them carefully select appropriate adjectives for their upcoming stories and exciting verbs to really make the image clearer in the readers mind.

Children also played 'Beat the Teacher' where they had to come up with alternative words for a given word and scored points if the teacher did not have it on her list. 

Finally, children had to edit and improve a text where all the adjectives had been replaced with sweets!

How would you re-write this text?
