Year 5/6

Last week in Jabberwocky class!!

Last week, Jabberwocky class continued their topic work on WWI. We read non-fiction books about WWI in Guided Reading and learned about the terrible conditions that soldiers faced in the trenches. In English we are studying Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo. We wrote persuasive letters to Tommo, one of the book's characters, using specific persuasive writing techniques including rhetorical questions and emotive language, in order to persuade Tommo not to join up to fight the Germans. As a tribute to the soldiers who died in the World Wars and to mark Remembrance Sunday, the children also made poppies out of a wire frame and clay petals and then painted the poppies.
