Our fiction theme this term focuses specifically on speech and language used between characters. Following this we then explore children's ability to write describing the setting of their story. Again we will be following our Talk for Writing method of teaching, which develops children's story telling skills by: imitating, innovating and then inventing their own stories. Last term I was extremely pleased with a range of stories Fir Class produced; this term is going to be an exciting one!
This term we will be specifically looking at Discussion writing. It is going to be an interesting time in English as we will be linking our writing to our fantastic Topic, which is the Egyptians. The children of Fir Class showed great potential last term when writing a set of instructions, therefore, I expect to see a brilliant standard of writing once again!
