Badger Class News 2.12.22

I wanted to do a bit of a different post this week because Badgers have blown me away with their writing! We have been thinking about writing a sequel to Marcy and the riddle of the Sphinx, which will begin in the depths of The Amazon Rainforest. We started by immersing ourselves in the sounds and images of the rainforest, we then created a huge word bank of descriptive language that we could use in the future. Throughout the week, we have learnt about figurative language, including similes, metaphors and personification. Today we wrote a first draft of a setting description to include in our sequels and the children’s writing was so descriptive, I really felt as if I were there whilst reading them. Brilliant work Badgers!
