This Spring in English we’re using Sue Hendra’s Supertato to help us write a monster plot for our Talk4Writing unit. We’ll be covering -ly adverbs to add description to our verbs within our sentences and using onomatopoeia to add impact to our writing and to excite our reader. To help us read with expression we will learn how to read speech in stories. Our independent stories will open with a setting where all is well until a villain appears and causes trouble. Thankfully, a hero will arrive but the villain is difficult to defeat. Will the hero be able to hatch a clever plan to defeat them? Let’s hope all ends well in Foxes…
This spring we continue to work on the four operations by consolidating addition and subtraction in the context of money before moving onto multiplication and division.
This term in our topic the Gruffalo’s Tea Party, we’ll explore animals and their habitats whilst finding time to write a non – chronological report about the mythical Gruffalo. Did we mention a tea party? Well of course, after learning about healthy eating we’ll invite you.
