King Edward Primary School Excitement + Determination = Success

Spring 2

English Spring 2

Our English learning (and class text) this half-term will continue to be heavily linked with our topic work on ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ for the first couple of weeks back, as we plan, draft and edit our own narratives involving the beasts that we have already designed, before moving on to writing biographies of well-known naturalists.


As the Y5/6 London residential takes place at the end of this half-term, we will then be moving on to a persuasive writing unit, with the end product being a persuasive travel guide/brochure all about London.


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.
