In English this week, we started a new Talk for Writing genre; Adventure Stories. As well as learning our new text, we also leanrt how to correctly use speech marks. On Friday we went onto our school field to draw the trees and to collect impressive descriptive language. We will use these words when writing our own stories next week.
In our final week before half term, we really enjoyed welcoming Grandparents in for our reading afternoon on Friday. We also had a great time dressing up in our scary outfits.
Everyone has been really impressed with the fanastic homework that the children have been bringing into school. The photos below show some of the work we have completed. Other pieces of our work can be seen on display on the school office.
