Voice of Teachers | Y1-Recounts
师说特辑 | 一年级-叙述你我的故事
Y1 Homeroom Teacher 小学一年级主班老师
For our first English topic we have been looking at recounts. Recounts are a form of text that retells an event or an experience. It is often based on the child’s experience and the purpose is to tell the reader what has happened from their own point of view. Recounts can be personal, factual or imaginative. When writing their recounts, the children had to think of several key features such as, Who?, Where?, What? When?
And ensure their information was in chronological order. To start the topic, we looked at several different books such as, Diary of a Wombat, Charlie the Firefighter and Stan and Goldie. The children then retold these stories to a partner and an adult.
When the children had written their sentences, they had to read them aloud to ensure they made sense. This proved to be a tricky task, but over the course of a few weeks the children’s confidence increased and they were able to edit their sentences with little adult support.
Once they checked their work with an adult, they wrote their recounts neatly in their English books.
After writing several recounts on familiar books, the children retold their own experiences of their Summer and their weekends.
The children wrote some fantastic recounts of stories and their own experiences. They should be very proud of the work they have produced. We are very happy with them!
