    Reading and Writing for Y3 & Y4 with Saluka

     

    Sharing books together is a well-known powerful tool to accelerate children’s progress in writing. It exposes them to a plethora of imagination, creativity and inspiration. Sharing books also conveys a wide range of vocabulary, grammar, spelling and punctuation for readers to use in their own writing. Using pictures, reading extensively and being creative with imagination, will enable your child to develop skills and stamina for writing. All of these tools will be utilised by your child as they enjoy progressing through our Book Club and Creative Writing Course.

    This Easter, we are going to look at FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE and how to use it in our own writing to enhance the reader’s experience. This will be achieved through daily Book Club, by interactively enjoying a magical story titled, “Cole’s Kingdom”. The author uses an abundance of figurative language to take the reader on a magical adventure through Cole’s grandma’s attic!

    FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE (using extracts from ‘Cole’s Kingdom’):
    Children will –
    • Analyse an imaginary setting (key features of an imaginary setting) and plan an imaginary setting using story imagery (can write up in own time if desired)
    • Daily – experience a wide range of senses related story vocabulary
    • Daily – a varied experience of developing skills and stamina for writing
    • Infer character’s feelings from actions and what is implied.
    • Analyse figurative language – (simile, metaphor, personification, pathetic fallacy, oxymoron, onomatopoeia, alliteration, assonance)
    • Experiment with similies and metaphors

    Daria has been a full time 11+ and 7+ tutor for six years and she loves to help her students achieve their academic goals, as well as building their confidence. Daria has successfully prepared numerous students for the 7+ and 11+ exams, for schools such as St Pauls, Westminster, Francis Holland, Putney High, Bute House, Channing, Highgate, Dame Alice Owens and Latymer. She has been tutoring intensive 7+ and 11+ courses during the holidays for the past several years. Due to the nature of the exams Daria’s students are facing, her tutees are learning very specific skills and covering certain subjects in much more depth than they would be in a classroom. She believes it is important to have a bespoke approach for each tutee, finding learning methods that are specific to that student and tailoring the material for the exams of the learner’s first choice schools.
