Hi Year 6,
Today in Literacy we have been learning about formal and informal language and the reason why journalists use formal language. This is going to help us when we come to writing our recount.
Below is an article which I would like you to read and understand. I would like you to identify the formal language and make a list of words/phrases on the blog. Tell me what the word means and the informal version of it. Also how does this make you feel?
For example (from another article) : the writer has used the word Endeavour which is a formal way of saying to try hard. This makes me feel this person is determined to succeed.
I would like everyone to have a go. Extra table points to Gain…..
