Summer is the time for holidays and fun at the beach. Explore how to write a recount to record exciting events that pupils may experience over the summer months, either as part of a school trip or with their family.
A model text is included in the pack, recounting a trip to a seaside pier, showing WAGOLL (what a good one looks like). Pupils can explore how the past tense is used and the rules for adding the suffix -ed to verbs.
The resource pack provides images to inspire writing. These could be used as part of geography in key stage 1, describing the human and physical features of landscapes.
This KS1 resource pack includes:
- Model text– Fun on the Pier!
- PDF images of summer trips
- Recount planning sheet
- Themed writing paper
- Teaching notes with guidance on how the resources could be used
