Summer Term

Year 5 Free-Choice Writing Task. 


In a couple of weeks time, we are giving the Year 5 children the opportunity to create their own piece of writing. This can be any style of writing and about any topic they choose. Children will need to arrive in school on Monday 26th June knowing what they would like to write and having conducted any necessary research. If the children are writing a non-fiction piece, any research must be in note-form only so that the writing is completed independently in school. Any fiction pieces just need to have the outline of a story. 


All planning for the writing, as well as the writing itself, will be completed in school. 


If the children arrive with extensive or overly detailed notes (including print outs of websites) they will, unfortunately, not be able to complete that writing as it would not be deemed to be independent.
