Rooted- Whole School Writing
On Wednesday 4th October, Warwick Road began it's first whole-school writing project. In order to raise the profile of writing, children from Year 1 - Year 6 were gathered in the assembly hall to watch a special video - Rooted. Children watched the first minute of the video before being tasked to write a recount detailing what happened in the section of the video we watched. Special story books were purchased for the children to write in. Teachers were asked to provide a sentence from each year group. These were given to Mr Lavery, who then created one piece of writing which contained work from one child from each year group - this will be displayed in the main hall for all to see. Each mid-term we will watch another section of the video before describing it in our story books. By the end of the year, every child in Year 1 - Year 6 will have the completed story; hopefully with progression visible throughout the year.
This half-term, children from Year 1 - Year 6 took park in their third 'Whole School Write'. By now the children are very familiar with the setting and characters, and this is reflected in their writing.
Please have a look below at the work our children have produced so far, and be sure to check back next mid-term to see their next paragraphs!
In the Summer 2 half term, children completed their final 'Rooted' paragraph. Children responded maturely to the end of the video, which saw Woody and Willow finally reach each other - and their end. We're very proud of the work that the children have produced and are anticipating the next whole-school write next year.
