Shared Reading/ Writer’s Workshop Mini Lesson

Today we had a look at a writing strategy that Nick Bland uses a lot in his books… Big and Bold!

What is Big and Bold?

Can you point it out in the text?

Why does Nick Bland use it?


 I am Special

I declare, I am special and extraordinary. I am not average! I have been custom-made. I am one of a kind. Of all the things God create, what he is most proud of is me. I am his masterpiece, his most prized possession. I will keep my head held high, knowing I am a child of the most high God, made in his very image.



What do you think it means to be made in the image of God?

Nickolas – ‘it means you could be really old, the image is probably because if you are the same age as god you are old.’

Viraj – ‘like helpful people who help people.’

Elijah – ‘a child of God! and then it means you believe God.’

Richard – ‘you are helpful and you are special.’

Alexandros – ‘I am different.’

Oliver – ‘in the image of God is being kind to people.’

Layla – ‘ you are kind to people and you are a special child.’

Mithra – ‘I am dad’s girl.’

Mary K – ‘I miss my people who died. I used to feel sad.’

Angelo – ‘I am special.’


What ‘ue’ words do we know?

Mary K – ‘true’

Alexandros – ‘blue’

Viraj – ‘rescue’

naomi – ‘argue’

Monique – ‘blue’

Oliver – ‘rescue’
