T4W unit journal – Invention

The children worked so hard on their Beowolf legends during this unit. It was great to see the language being applied in their independent 100 word challenge writing each week. As well as that they completed an independent warm write creating their own legend. Before they could complete their warm write, they used the original text to support with their planning. For some children, this worked really well and they used the ideas they had learnt. For others, their better writing came from the freedom of a prompt and then just going for it.

By the end of the unit, the children were confident to use the available tool kits, examples etc around the classroom to support with their writing!

For the next unit, I want the children to have more time on their independent inventions as I always feel this gets either rushed or not given enough time. Each unit brings a new change :)
