In this first Autumn half term in English we will be reading and writing about Elmer the elephant. The children will be learning to retell the story using lots of actions. The children will then be writing the story themselves.
We will also be developing our punctuation and grammar skills during our daily SPaG time (spelling, punctuation and grammar). This half term we will have a focus on using finger spaces, capital letters and full stops accurately in our writing. Towards the end of the half term we will be reading and creating our own seasonal poems. When we write our poems, we will be entering them into a competition. We will be in with a chance to win a book of our school’s poetry entries. The children will also be exploring Aboriginal Dreamtime Stories and using their fantastic imagination to create their own story based on their topic artwork. Finally, we will be researching information about Diwali to write in our own non-chronological report.
