Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Never ignore a possible!

Our Wonderful Writing!

Doves and Bullfinches have been having a wonderful time learning how to write and how to extend our vocabulary beyond what we thought we could do and to make sure we ‘never ignore a possible’.

We have explored Anne Frank’s Diary in words, emotions and talk. We placed ourselves in her shoes and wondered how we would feel, Cyrus felt that he would –

‘like to forget about my woes and imagine a sunset, a pink and yellow and orange halo descending past the horizon and think, I used to sit on the schools carpet of blazing bluebells, listening to the dying symphony of songbirds, hoping it would never end’ – Cyrus

After exploring Anne Frank, we have moved on to Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell, a warm magical book full of beautiful words, racing images and stories of pursing your dreams and never ignoring a possible.

Today, we started our persuasive writing using the voice of Charles who is trying to convince Miss Eliot (from the national agency of child protection) that it is ok for a man to look after a baby. One he found floating through the water, wrapped up inside a cello case, inside Beethoven’s symphony for warmth.

Ayesha puts forward a strong argument – (Draft 1)

‘Before Sophie’s arrival my house was covered in slippery, wooden flooring and sharp table corners. Now, the wooden flooring has been graced in long, red silky carpets and I have covered the table edges in thousands of rubber bands. I, Charles Maxim, promise my ocean child that I will protect her, love her and care for her no matter what.’

What a wonderful first draft, we can’t wait to see what her next draft looks like as she develops her writing, explores her ‘possibles’ and responds to her next steps!
