Year 6 are reading the novel ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’. Using evidence from the text, we drew maps of Weirwold, then wrote descriptive pieces, imagining we were walking through our maps. In our descriptions we made use of powerful adjectives, embedded clauses, similes, metaphors and prepositions to add interest for our readers. Year 6 went on a fact hunt around school in History this week. They had to find 9 facts about the Mayan writing system. Did you know the Maya wrote on paper made from the bark of a fig tree?
