Year 6 The Alchemist’s Letter

After writing their memories of their time at Primary School, we watched a short film called ‘The Alchemist’s Letter’ about an alchemist who invented a machine to make gold fuelled by his memories. In his obsessive quest to make gold, the alchemist abandoned his family and learned a sober lesson in the process. The children enjoyed the story and made links to Harry Potter who used memories in the pensieve and to ‘The Nowhere Emporium’  which we read earlier this term. Year 6 wrote a recount of the story. Here are a selection of them. They all worked really well and used wide vocabulary in detailed and descriptive sentences. Well done Year 6! I’m proud of you.
