Writing exciting sentences


Temple Run 1

Today in year six we wrote some ‘exciting sentences’ based on the popular app, Temple Run. ‘Writing exciting sentences’ is a book from Alan Peat (@alanpeat) which gives models and examples of amazing sentences.


Today we  looked at two sentence types:

When; when; when, then.


Tell: show 3 exampes;__.


We wrote on tables too (we call them ‘blue boards’) which helped us to explore our ideas and gave us space to think. Have a look at pictures of some of our examples below.

About Me

 I am Mrs Tunnicliffe and I am a teacher at Riders Junior School. I trained to be a teacher for four years at the University of Brighton and  have been teaching at Riders since September 2007. During the six years I have been at Riders, I have taught in year 3, year 5 and year 6 so I’ve been teaching/training to teach for 10 years now!

I work across Riders Infant and Junior School as an English leader (among other things). This means that I work hard to improve the reading, writing, speaking and listening of children at Riders Infant and Junior School. I work with the children, teachers and support staff in both schools to make sure that children are getting better at English every day.

Feel free to leave a comment or ask a question and I will be more than happy to help!
