Year 5 more able writers group

Our Year 5 more able writers, expertly led by Mrs Puplett (English subject leader) have enjoyed composing their entries to Reigate Grammar School's writing competition. This year's title was "If you had a superpower ..."

High quality discussion, reading of challenging children's literature, development of vocabulary, drafting and editing all form part of the children's work within the more able groups, building on the excellent work achieved in class lessons.

The Super Power of Time Travel - by Ini

If I had the power of time travel,

I would travel to the past.

I would not stop until Jesus’ time,

And I would travel very fast.

 

I would tell Him my ideas,

To make the world good.

Praise and worship Him,

Like a good Christian should.

 

If I had the power of time travel,

I would travel to the past.

I would not stop until the Ancient Egyptian times,

And I would travel very fast.

 

I would tell them to stop sacrificing people,

Say that there is a better way.

I would give slaves proper jobs,

Jobs that would actually pay.

 

If I had the power of time travel,

I would travel to the past.

I would not stop until a criminal committed a crime,

And I would travel very fast.

 

I would tell them to stop stealing,

To stop fighting and being bad

 I would make sure that everyone was kind to one another,

And then everyone would be glad.

 

That is what I would do if I had the power to time travel,

What about you?

If you had the power of time travel,

What would you do?

 

The Super Power of Book Characters - by Ella

If I had a super power, I would make book characters come to life.

 

I would choose Aslan the lion.

He is brave and courageous and always has great ideas to save Narnia.

I would choose a fairy godmother

who is kind and caring  and loves to wave a wand to grant a wish .

I would choose the Borrowers.

They are small and clever and could find us information, be our  little friends.

I would choose the BFG.

He is big and friendly and could save the world from fire with his big friendly breath.

I would choose Mary Poppins.

She is delightful but strict and could help families to look after their children.

If I had a superpower I would make book characters come to life.

But wait…

I know people who are:

Brave and courageous

Kind and caring

Small and clever

Big and friendly

Delightful but strict

They are inside us, you and me

Just look around you and you will see!

 

Super Power - by Matthew

I have a super power

I use it for the good

Like escaping from villains

In the blink of an eye.

 

I have a super power

I use it for the best reasons

Because I can sneak

Into a robbers’ hideout

Without even them knowing it.

 

I have a super power

I use it for when evil is done

I can swim past a man- eating shark

And be able to tell the tale.

 

I have a super power

I use it to get away from danger

In a war I am capable of

Knowing the enemy’s tactics.

 

I have a super power

I use it to save people’s lives

I can look underground

To see if anyone is hiding anything bad.

 

So, can you guess my Super Power?

Are you itching to find out?

Well I’m a shape shifter.

And would you do these things

If you had my Super Power?
