Being ‘Teacher’

Our gaming topic is coming to an end and our final task is to write a story based around a computer game.  We have worked on the setting, the characters and how to punctuate and paragraph speech accurately.  Now, we are putting this all together, interweaving action, description and dialogue to show characterisation and to advance the action.  This will be an assessed piece of writing so we have to put in a lot of effort.

Yesterday, we got the chance to be the ‘teacher’ and analysed Mrs Rees’ story.  We had to use our Year 6 checklist to identify the features she had used and discuss how characterisation was shown through dialogue and action.

Creating our own computer games

We have been working together to create our own computer games using ‘Scratch’.  This has involved creating the graphics, movement, sound, text, algorithms and code.  Some of us really rose to this challenge.  However, some of us found it very frustrating.  We have realised that even when something is difficult, we shouldn’t give in and to keep trying different ideas until it works.

Year 6 visit to Crucial Crew

We had a great time today at Crucial Crew where the children took part in different scenarios all aimed at keeping safe.
