Had a good session on character desciptions. The children are beginning to feel more confident in sharing their ideas with their peers. It has been good listening to their discussions about how to possibly improve their writing. Some are still needing a bit of direction, mainly because of their age or writing level. They are making very good connections with the huge range of fairy tales available in the class for reading session. Tomorrow we have our first parent/ grandparent in to read fairy tales to the class. It will be great for the children to see how different people can bring the characters to life.
Tomorrow we will continue to develop our characters and our settings. Not sure if they will use these pieces of writing for the main story or if they will just be practise pieces.
