This blog is a way to showcase and promote writing in Room 6. It allows the children to see they are writing for a purpose - an audience!

This is where the children can enter their 'story backpack' stories.
Check out the exciting adventures Hoo Hoo, Franklin, Sam and Lazy Lamb have been up to!

Here is a video clip we used to simulate our senses! The children produced great writing thinking about hooking the audience in and using 'wow' words.

Visit Room 6 to check out our work!

Below are some websites that the children may like to look at. They are great for practicing spelling and reading skills.
