Recounts in Y4
Both Year 4 classes have plunged with enthusiasm into their work on recounts, using the book “Voices in the Park” as their hook. Using a model text based on an additional character mentioned in the original story, the pedigree labrador Victoria, both Beam and Beech classes have been analysing features of narrative accounts and identifying examples of each in their model text.
The children particularly enjoyed creating freeze frames to explain the meaning of new and exciting adjectives. Hopefully, with the memories of laughter and paired work to guide them, they will remember to use their new vocabulary in their own personal recount when they start writing it from next week onwards.
