Viking recounts

Thursday 01 February 2024

Over the last two weeks, Y6 have been writing a recount. It linked to our class novel, Viking Boy, where we described witnessing a raid on a farm and the untimely death of the main character’s father.

This writing was a little different because each child chose their own R2s (what you must remember to include in your writing). Take a look at the example below.

A standout success for the class has been our powerful vocabulary as well as using speech to convey character and advance the action.

Help at home by continuing to practice writing speech and using the reporting clause in different places.

Have a read of some excellent examples below.
