This half term, the children will begin with an English unit on fiction stories. They will be creating their own story for some pages from a wordless picture book. This is a whole school project which will end with children across all years creating a story for the book ’Journey’. As well as this, children will explore persuasive writing. They will be gaining an understanding of the features of an advert, which will link with their topic work on Fairgrounds.
In the second half of the term, we will be looking at non-chronological reports, which are not written in order, and the features alongside these, as well as different forms of poetry. Again these will be linked to the topic we will be studying.
You can help by:
Encouraging your child to complete their weekly spellings.
Hearing your child read at least 3 times a week. Reading is an essential part of your child’s learning and progress, and it is important to talk to them about the book to check they understand it. Please sign your child’s reading diary to confirm that this is taking place.
