Year 5 use a picture stimulus as a vehicle for creative writing.
The autumn term in Year 5 was filled with non-fiction writing. Spring will be a term of mainly fiction writing, using narrative and dialogue to tell stories. These two videos show two different groups in the process of verbalising and pooling their ideas of what is happening in this picture. Who are the characters? What are they doing and why? Where are they? What might happen next? It is often the case that the children who struggle with the physical process of writing, are full of inspirational writing ideas that they can freely share through discussion. This is called "Talk for Writing" and is an ESSENTIAL early stage in the creative writing process. The children went on to write a very wide range of short stories or story extracts based upon this picture.
Enjoy the videos.
