Recount writing!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In literacy these past few weeks, the children have been writing a recount of the moon landing! We have been looking at a fantastic book called ‘Where once we stood’, which is filled with great stories and images from the Apollo missions. The children have immersed themselves in the texta and collected a chronology of events and a detailed word bank, which they have been using in their recounts (pretending to be Neil Armstrong). The children finished off their writing this week and then spent some time editing and enhancing their work with their partners. They all showed excellent reciprocity to coach each other, and wonderful resilience to meet their targets and really think in depth about the language they were using. Some children even went onto publishing their work on Showbie!
