Short BURST Writing

Short BURST Writing


Yesterday, the children began a piece of short burst writing using our class novel for inspiration. We know that the four Pevensie children ‘were sent away from London during the war because of the air-raids. They were sent to the house of an old Professor who lived in the heart of the country‘.

We then started to look at the reasons behind the evacuation in a lot more detail. In fact, the children watched the opening to the film and witnessed just what it was like to live in London during the Second World War. With bombs dropping and people panicking, it resulted in the children being sent to live away from their parents. Using hot seating, we unpicked how the characters may have felt during the air-raid and on the train as they were sent to live away from their mother.

Today, the children reflected on their understanding of the thoughts and feelings of the character and wrote a diary entry from the viewpoint of one of the four Pevensie children. Using the video, hot seating and toolkit, the children were able to really get into the mindset of the character and produce some FANTASTIC diary entries. Well done, Year 4!
