King Edward Primary School Excitement + Determination = Success

Summer 1

English Summer 1

Our English learning for the first few weeks of this half-term will focus heavily on revision of key SPAG concepts and skills, whilst the pieces of writing that we create using this understanding will continue to focus on ‘The Great Plague’, which has proven extremely effective in stimulating some very effective pieces of writing.


Genres focused on will include newspaper reports and narrative story-telling. You all worked particularly hard last half-term developing your writing skills and produced some excellent pieces of work – especially your fantastic narratives based upon the ‘Wing’ video clip stimulus and we hope to continue the excellent level of written work throughout this final term.


Later on in the half-term, we will be moving away from our topic work to focus on ensuring that we have evidence of you all writing in a range of different styles and genres, in order to put you in the very best position possible for your final writing assessments. This will give you the opportunity to get to grips with some really exciting, engaging and enjoyable one-off writing projects!
