How the Mechanical Hound Works

‘How the Mechanical Hound Works’


We’ve been as busy as beavers in Year Six since half term. In literacy, we have been learning all about explanation texts. Over the past few weeks, we have learnt our model text which will help us generate ideas, structure our writing and help us improve our vocabulary and punctuation choices when it comes to writing our very own explanation text.

I was very impressed with the way in which the children worked cohesively in order to perform the text rather than just tell it. See for yourself…



Well done, Year 6. A memorable performance indeed…
