We have used the theme of Instagram to create a grammar board to help us remember all of the difficult grammar terminology and to show off our wow sentence types.
The Lady of Shalott
We studied the Lady of Shalott and explored poetic form, using syllables, rhythm and rhyme. We performed the poems and imitated them to write from different perspectives. We then wrote a prequel to the life of Lady of Shalott and used inference to predict her past.
Do you know who Frankenstein is? Is it the monster? Is it the Doctor who created the beast?
We have recently studied the classic gothic novel and explored the dark themes. We looked at story structure and investigated the many flashbacks from different character perspectives. We have used a range of different sentence types to produce writing for suspense and mystery.
We then used flashback WAGOLL (what a good one looks like) to capture language and devices which will help use write a flashback. Finally, we took on the role of Victor's wife and wrote a flashback from her perspective, documenting her emotions during the death of William.
