This term has begun with simple recounts about our holidays. The children have been telling us their adventures.

We will be focussing on sentences this term and particularly capital letters and full stops.  We then look at joining sentences to add interest and to make them longer, this begins with words like ‘and’ and then others such as ‘but’ or’because’.

Our story work will be on stories with predictable language so that we can all be involved and work on some drama and storytelling. At first it is important that children can verbally retell a story before embarking on writing their own masterpieces.

Later this term we will be looking at poetry particularly those with rhyming couplets.
