King Edward Primary School Excitement + Determination = Success

Spring 2

English Spring 2

Our English learning this half-term will focus on ‘The Great Plague’, which is sure to get the children enthused and engaged, and support us in getting the very best writing possible out of them! Genres focused on will include newspaper reports, biographies, explanation texts and narrative story-telling.


Alongside our English learning, we will also be revising key SPAG concepts, from punctuation such as parenthesis and semi-colons to word classes such as subordinating conjunctions and modal verbs and tenses such as the present perfect tense and conditional tenses as well as passive voice, which, along with much more, form the basis of the Y6 grammar curriculum.


The children worked really hard last term on their writing skills and produced some excellent pieces of work and we hope to continue the excellent level of written work throughout the Spring Term.
