Last Friday, as a treat after the SATs, Year 6 wanted to make horror movies to give Mrs Richardson and Mr Carter a little fright. They enjoyed using the iPads to make the movies; they even got to star in them, direct them and edit them. The movies ranged from ghosts to gore with a slight emotional touch.
We continued with our horror theme this week as Mr Carter and Mrs Richardson wrote a frightful tale with a lot of description. Year 6 liked it so much that they wanted to create their own story which was helpful because that was their next challenge. They were given a set of pictures to choose from; they all looked terrifying! Everyone picked their favourite horror setting and wrote notes about the scene. Then they got into more detail and started planning their story. Some were set in the present and some were set in the past.
Year 6 enjoyed writing their horror stories – some were even better than the example story!
