Becoming authors…

Our literacy work is based around ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.’ We have written our own parts of the story.  We had to think carefully about the language we used because we wanted our writing to be exciting for a person to read.

Some children used a thesaurus to improve their writing; to make their vocabulary choices more exciting.  Others used a dictionary to check spellings.

“I liked writing because Harry was really happy and Dudley was really sad. Normally Harry doesn’t get to go out but Dudley goes out with his parents all the time” Cole

“I’ve enjoyed the first three chapters of Harry Potter because it includes more detail than the film.” Mckenzie
