At Lowfield writing is at the heart of our curriculm as the children have the opportunity to write in a variety of contexts and subjects. We try and give the children lots of opportunities to develop their writing using first hand real experiences. .
On Monday 23rd January we had the pleasure of inviting Conrad Burdekin into school to work with pupils from Year 1 and Year 2 for the day. Pupils thought it was amazing to listen to his poems and stories and were inspired to do some creative writing with him. He finished off the day with an assembly to celebrate the writing the children had done.
We are looking forward to reading his books which we have bought for the school library.
In Foundation and Key Stage 1 we have been looking at different ways of making writing fun and giving children clear success criteria to follow in order to improve their writing. Each class has a display where children's work will be displayed on a regular basis when the have "blown our socks off" with their super writing.
At the end of each half term we will be choosing children from each class to receive a funky pair of socks as a prize and their writing will be displayed in the library and here on the website.
Key Stage 1 had a Sock themed writing day on Friday 21st October. It was non uniform day and the children were asked to wear multicoloured socks for the day.
In class they looked at the socks book by Nick Sharrat and completed different socks themed writing activties. Parents were invited into school to come and celebrate the children's writing and find out a bit more about how the socks are used in class.
Each class chose one child to be the socks writing winner who were awarded with a pair of socks of course!
Our Year 2 winners were Arzoo and Adnan who blew their teachers socks off - well done!
