An author calls

We were extremely lucky to secure a visit from new author Christian O'Connell this week. You may know him better as the presenter of the breakfast radio show on Absolute radio. The year 6 children had the unique opportunity to ask Christian questions about his book and inspiration. They also had the chance to purchase signed copies of his book.

Lo que aprendimos en español - T4W en español (Primavera 4)

el naboOver the last three lessons, Year 5 have been exploring a story using a Talk for Writing approach that is used in Literacy lessons. 

The story, El Nabo Enorme, was familiar to them as it's a story they have heard in English (The Enormous Turnip) and, as Señora Stevens began the story, several children recalled that she had told it to them when they were in KS1. The familarity helped them understand but so did the repetitive nature of the the story as el abuelo called la abuela for help, she called Marisol, Marisol called el perro and so on until finally el nabo enorme came out of the ground and they all fell over. And the third 'aid' was that it was told using actions. If you have a child in Y5, ask them to do the actions for the extract in the image! 

As Señora Stevens read, everyone joined in with the actions on the first reading before beginning to join in with the text on the second reading. The third reading was accompanied by acting that would not have been out of place at the RSC by pupils in costumes by IKEA and Señora Stevens' Spanish dressing up box! As you can imagine, it was a lot of fun, especially trying to tira together and of course, falling in a heap!

Having joined in the story several times, we then tried to write our own version of the story. Señora Stevens wrote La fresa enorme about an enormous strawberry, and then the pupils wrote their own versions. Some are below. 

It was obvious that it was a task that they enjoyed as everyone was on task, there was a buzz of work rather than chat, and the results are excellent. In fact, there were complaints that they wanted to write more than the boxes on the sheet allowed!

¡Unos trabajos excelentes! Señora Stevens is looking forward to using T4W with Y3 in the next couple of weeks too!
