Over the next 2 weeks the children will be learning to write a descriptive text. We will be learning to describe pictures of different story settings by coming up with ideas for relevant nouns, verbs and adjectives, then using these in sentences to write about what the scene looks like.
For the next topic of writing, children will be working towards writing their own version of 'We're going on a bear hunt'. Unlike the book, our children will be going on an animal hunt around their own house.
For the next 2 weeks in writing, we will be working towards writing a non-fiction text about rhinos. The lessons in the sequence are designed to allow children to understand and practise the key features of non-fiction texts before their independent 'Bee's knees' task at the end.
