They read about Neil Armstrong in the interactive eBook, using the eBook’s features to find out about Neil Armstrong’s personal qualities. They focus on effective use of pronouns and fronted adverbials, and use these in their writing tasks: to write a diary entry and a biography.
Fiction Christophe’s Story
The children start by listening to Christophe’s Story, responding to questions that stretch their comprehension and questioning skills. They use discussion, drama and role play to understand more about the characters. They look at the author’s use of language: her choice of memorable words and phrases. Children draw on their understanding of conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions to express time and cause to tell their own oral recounts, and then turn these into written recounts. Children use a letter as a model to write their own, applying their ability to write multi-clause sentences. Children repeat the same task for a book blurb, if required. In the main writing task, children write their own stories, drawing on their own personal experiences and a shared model text.
