English - Spring
In English during the first part of this term, we will be kicking off the year with a newspaper report linked to our history learning about the Battle of Dunkirk. This will enable us to revisit some of the key English skills and content covered so far this year, including formal and informal language, passive voice and speech punctuation, amongst many others. In order to be the best journalists that we can be, we will also be exploring a range of newspaper reports, identifying their key features and evaluating them in terms of their effectiveness.
Following this will then be a narrative story-writing unit, giving us another chance to be authors and create our own amazing stories, complete with fabulous character description.
Later on, after half-term, we will be producing non-chronological reports, diary entries and setting descriptions too, so lots to look forward to!
