Over the last 4 weeks, year 5 have been emersed in a range of rainforest based stories and encountered a host of new, exciting vocabulary. Through our SPaG work we have been playing around with sentence structures and used a variety of language features with our new vocabulary to create engaging descriptions. We have mostly been focusing on using simile starters, fronted adverbial and relative clauses.

Based on our class novel, Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo, each child has written their own adventure story with a descriptive opening, a tense build up, a dramatic dilemma and a clever resolution and ending!
