Our Amazing Literacy

This half term the children have begun to read the story of Iliona, A rich Greek girl who is captured by pirates and sold to a Roman family as a slave.


September 2019

This week the children acted out an auction, thinking about their best selling points and bidding for a slave with features that would be of use! 


We have been working hard to write about the character's emotions using clues and inferring the feelings. 

Some super examples included:

* tears welled up in my eyes

* goose bumps covered my body

* I trembled with fear

* I slumped on the bed starring down at the floor

* my banged my fists on the door

* my whole body shuddered

* A shiver ran down my spine


Can you guess how they were feeling?
