In English we will be starting this term with a whole school project. The whole school will be using the picture book, The Journey by Aaron Becker as a stimulus for writing. Each year group will take a section of the book and write the narrative for it. Children will be looking at features of narrative texts including; noun phrases, using different conjunctions, starting sentences with adverbs and different sentence types. Once each year group has written their sections the whole book will be produced for others to read and enjoy.
The second part of the half term has a non fiction focus. We will be aiming to write an information text on Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole - linking to our topic on Significant People in History - Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. We will be exploring sentence types, layout and purpose to ensure children are aware of text type and what the audience needs from the piece of writing.
