Alien Worlds and Short Burst Writing

In the first half of the summer term we were looking at space in the Y3-4 class. We did a variety of different exercises responding to texts I read aloud or we read together, e.g. The Girl who Drank the Moon (Kelly Barnhill); The Jamie Drake Equation (Christopher Edge); 100 Things to Know about Space. Usually we work on one story per half-term, and plan it in Week 4 of our classes. This time, to change things up a bit, I decided to do lots of different short bursts of writing (we did 3-4), and then plan a longer story in the second half of term. The results have been really good and we had a very enjoyable first half of term! I’m looking forward to the longer stories too, which might come out of ideas from the shorter bursts of writing we’ve already done.
