Year 5 Writing Examples

In preparation for fiction stories, Year 5 have been working hard to develop essential writing skills. One such skill is being able to grip the reader with a good introduction. In pairs, they were asked to write a story opener based on a specific picture and leave the paragraph on a cliff hanger.

They needed to include:

  1. Onomatopoeia
  2. Personification
  3. 5 Senses
  4. Similes
  5. Metaphors

Below you can find examples of how the class got on:

Hi Everyone! My name is Ollie Andrew and I am so excited to be joining the EISB team. I come from a beautiful part of England, the South-West, which includes the amazing world heritage site, Stonehenge. However, I have been living in Manchester for the last 2 years, studying a master’s in Psychology of Education and working in various educational settings. My thesis focused on children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties and how schools can focus on keeping these children engaged in school. My passion in education is understanding how individuals learn and the barriers that we must cross in order for everyone to reach their potential.
