Literacy

This term we will be focussing on GPAS and reading skills. Identifying features of different text types, extracting meanings from texts and empathising with characters. Each week the children are given ten spellings to learn. It is important that the children check the meanings of these words and find a further ten with the same spelling pattern. They will then be tested on the given spellings plus a blind five every Monday morning.

In writing we will look at the features of different types of writing.  These will include newspaper reports, fictional narratives, descriptive writing, poetry and persuasive writing. We will be encouraging children to magpie ideas from the class texts to create their own descriptive pieces.
