This week, Year 4 have started a unit on stories with historical settings focusing on stories about Vikings. Yesterday we began looking at a story about a Viking called Victor and started to memorise it by using Talk 4 Writing. We learnt the words of the story by looking at symbols and making up actions to help us.
Today we even began making our Talk 4 Writing maps and taught other children in the class the section we’d worked on.
By the end of today’s lesson we could read the whole story off by heart, using only pictures and actions to help us – none of us cheated and looked at the words!
