We are continuing with our Literacy work on Nelson Mandela. Our focus now is recount writing. We are focusing on the time in Mandela's life when he was held prison on the harsh prison island of Robben Island (between 1964 and 1982). We have been putting ourselves into Mandela's shoes, imagining what it was like to be him. We even have a cell marked out in the classroom to give us a visual idea of just how small his cell was! We will be writing diary entires and used role play to rehearse our ideas ready to write some amazing recounts, but firstly we have written poems imagining that we are Mandela in his cell.
We all sat in our class cell and read our poems to each other. Here are a few:
Written by Mrs Matthews & Mrs Hayter (proud class teachers) and their brilliant pupils (Mandela class).
