Roughly two weeks ago I had a very motivating, enjoyable and fun packed English lesson! Every minute I was thoroughly gripped and could not wait to learn more. However, as well as it being a very intriguing lesson, I also learnt quite a lot too! Firstly, we kicked off with a challenging starter in which we wrote a detailed prediction of what we thought the ‘SOW’ would be for our new term. This excited me as I love using my noticing skills to infer new topics. Moreover, as a stretch and challenge task we were told to summarise our prediction in just fifty words! Then, later on in the lesson, Miss Stewart introduced us all to an AMAZING acronym. AFORESTER is its name; however, for each letter there is a word and for each word there is a meaning. Importantly, they were all key features that are needed in a successful speech. Furthermore, a little bit later we were given the challenge of writing our very own persuasive speech. This was the main activity of our captivating lesson.

I always enjoy a demanding challenge when it comes to my English lessons and I embrace every opportunity to explore my inner creativity when it comes to writing!

Katie Few- My Favourite Lesson!

sampleMy favourite lesson was in ICT when we learnt how to make QR codes. It was my favourite lesson because it was the one I found the most interesting and we were given the opportunity and freedom to make our own QR codes. The lesson started by going through a presentation with our teacher telling us how to make a QR code and what they are used for. The main activity was to make one or more QR codes and download them onto our year 6 welcome presentation. The main things I learnt were:

  • to use a QR code safely and responsibly;
  • to make sure I have the correct website;
  • and when I or even you scan a QR code it takes us to a website quicker than finding it independently .

I think these are the key things I have learnt because they are the ones that have stayed in my mind and are the most useful.
