During this half term we will practise and refine our reading and writing skills through a range of genres. We will begin by writing a recount of our Conkers trip, create information booklets, write lists and letters about woodland animals. We will explore the features of information texts and instructions, learning about different writing genres. We will learn the story of Hansel and Gretel, creating our own woodland adventure story. Later in the term we will plan and have a tea party with Mr Fox and write a recount of this experience. In handwriting we will practise and consolidate using our neatest joined up letters and ensuring ascenders and descenders are clear when writing words and sentences. The phonic screening check will be this half term during week 2 of the term.
