At Park Hill Primary School, we always challenge the children in their writing. We celebrate children who are focused on improving their work and being the best they can be. Welcome to our Writing Hall of Fame, illustrating the best work from around the school!
Year 2 have been spending a lot of time thinking about how we can extend our sentences to make them longer and more exciting. We can add conjunctions, adjectives, adverbs, suffixes and different punctuation. Today we had a simple sentence “The tiger was hungry.” We wrote this on a strip of paper, and then cut […]
Year 2 have been wrongly accused of dropping litter onto the KS2 playground. In fact, they were even going to lose their break time as a consequence, but they eloquently and articulately wrote amazingly persuasive letters to Mr Griffin explaining that it wasn’t them… it couldn’t have been! I was lucky to be able to […]

Last week we learned about perseverance, and this week’s homework was to think about friends, family or famous people who have shown this trait and how we can learn from them. The children wrote about some really inspiring people, and here are two amazing examples. Maia wrote about her friend Giselle who is in 5V… […]
Today RM worked their socks off in writing. They produced some fantastic pieces of work telling me all about the wonderful present they got a Christmas. They thought hard about what makes a good writer together before writing. When writing a caption they tried hard think it, say it out loud , write it and […]

They used pen for the first time and the results are fantastic. The Perfect Pen Pals are […]
RPT have worked really hard over the past 2 days to use different words to describe the feel of some mysterious objects inside our cauldrons. We then wrote these words and sentences by applying our phonic skills. Mrs Phillips has been amazed by the wonderful writing which has been produced and all of the great […]
RM worked really hard to describe the mysterious objects in the cauldrons. There was cooked spaghetti, lime jelly, feathers and sticks . We worked hard to use all the phonics sounds that we have learnt so far. Great writing RM!

5LP worked really hard on a story last week. To keep them motivated, Mrs Parashar bought in sweets. Not only that, but we skipped our maths lesson to finish our story. Unfortunately Mr Griffin found out and wasn’t too happy, so we decided to write to him to explain our side of the story. Can […]
Last week, Year 2 wrote some fantastic postcards from Sunny the meerkat, describing his extraordinary adventures in Coventry City. We used the pictures that Sunny took as inspiration, and have come up with some wonderfully exciting ideas.

We used lots of great language features to improve our sentences such as fronted adverbials, expanded nouns phrases, brackets and subordinate clauses. […]
We’ve had an exciting week planning and writing a story, using ideas from Roald Dahl’s Matilda. We had fun describing a hero and a villain. The villain then had to do something terrible, but fear not as the hero always got revenge, most of the time with the use of special powers just like Matilda. Harry […]
Tife! The standard of writing this week has been very high, but Tife has impressed me with her amazing narrative and punctuation. We are excited to start exploring traditional tales next week, with the Little Red Riding Hood!
