English at Brierley Forest Primary and Nursery School
At Brierley, we use a variety of schemes to help in supporting our understanding of English. We use Rainbow Grammar to develop our grammatical knowledge throughout the school and we are very lucky to be apart of online sessions with the Talk for Writing Team in Year 5. Over the year we look at creating a variety of different texts, including: poetry, newspaper articles, narratives, diary entries, blogs and many more. To inspire us, alongside our writing work we read a range of books.
In English, we have an exciting opportunity this term! We will be working with Pie Corbett and the Talk for Writing team to improve our narrative, story writing skills. We will take part in online sessions on Monday mornings to develop our ideas ready for the rest of the week. Alongside this we will be looking at the text 'Brightstorm'.
You can see some examples of our work below!

Unbelievable work coming soon!
This week with the Talk for Writing team we have been developing our use of figurative language, such as: similes, personification, metaphors and juxtapositions. We have designed our own dragons and used figurative language to create a poem.
