In English we will be starting this term with a non fiction focus. We will be aiming to write a non-chronological report on owls - linking to our topic on habitats and the British Woodlands. We will be using a talk for writing approach which hooks the children in and allows them to explore features and language of the text type before writing their own version. We will be focusing on dragons for this.
In the second half of the term, we will be focusing on narrative texts. All work will be around the lovely story, 'The Owl who is afraid of the dark' by Jill Tomlinson. Children will create a character study of the main character Plop, focusing on language choices - adjectives, adverbs and sentence types and will write a book review of the story as a whole.
