Over the last little while, Year 6 has been looking at Recounts on a wide range of events and topics. Some of us have been watching CNN Student News and creating recounts based on the reports we've watched, others have written recounts about family events and others have written recounts based on school events they have participated in.  We've practiced creating "hooks" to draw our readers in and using interesting descriptive vocabulary to give a clear description of events as they happened.

It has been a lot of work!

Sharing our learning in a poster.
Thinking about your learning, can you explain some of the main features of a recount? What things make a recount different from other forms of writing?
