We will begin our literacy learning this term with narrative writing. Our first text will be ‘Flat Stanley’ and after exploring the book we will be focusing on writing character descriptions. Following this we will be planning and writing a five part story concentrating on key learning such as using conjunctions, fronted adverbials and embellished sentences. In addition to this, we will be writing non-chronological reports all about Ancient Egypt, get ready to do some research! In guided reading we will also focus on another key text, ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’.
