English

Here you will find out what we will be getting up to in our English lessons and our current spellings.

 

 

This half term starts with our exciting Author's Week. We will look closely at two books: 'The Day the Crayons Quit' and 'The Witches'. We will spend the whole week studying these books and even do some baking based around the theme of story.

 

 

 

Following that, we will explore Adventure and Mystery stories. We will look at what makes a good story and the features relating to these. We start off with a cold write, eventually leading up to our hot write where we will be writing our own Adventure story!

Finally we will developing our leaflet writing skills. We will be looking at some of the features of leaflets and this will lead up to writing our own leaflets based around our Learning Challenge topic- 'Do you need a plane to get to Spain?'. We can't wait to show you the improvement we make!
